Jackson Square’s newest restaurant is a trestle in many ways. The overhead beams appear to buttress the old-school vibe and look of the historic district while the trestle table draws locals in.

I was never really into dinner theater. One of my best friends played an Oscar-worthy Maria in Joey and Maria’s Wedding in San Diego, but like many real weddings, the food took a back seat to the cheating cousins, tipsy bridesmaids and mouthy mothers-in-law.

  I like to think I get around town to check out the new restaurants, but truth is I’ve been a bit spoiled lately with all the tasty new places opening up within very convenient stumbling distance from my Civic Center condo.

When is comes to cooking, many of us try and recreate homey dishes “just like mom used to make.” But for Matt McNamara and Teague Moriarty, who serve up a next generation menu at their San Francisco restaurant Sons & Daughters that mixes classic French technique, molecular gastronomy and a little rebellious reconfiguring of local, seasonal ingredients, Mom’s casserole didn’t make it anywhere near the kitchen.
