You should’ve seen it coming—once the Richmond got itself a beautiful all-day spot, it’s become perpetually full, and for a good reason. While dinner at Pearl is a pleasure, use the Burning Man hiatus to get in here for brunch. When seated in a stylish booth, order some colorful dishes like the “Eggs in Purgatory” (lamb sausage, spicy San Marzano tomatoes, and rosemary polenta wrapped in a pita); and a sweet Dutch baby, sometimes called a German pancake, complete with Kumquat preserve, almonds, and whipped crème fraiche. Accompany them with cocktails and relax. Then, gossip away. No one will hear you.

Pearl is the latest from the restauranteurs behind Pizzetta 211, with a dining room and full bar built inside of a restored turn-of-the-century apothecary. The California-meets-Mediterranean cuisine features handmade pastas, family-style whole fish & meats, paired with creative cocktails.
Pearl is open for coffee and pastries weekday mornings from 7:30am until 2pm, and dinner service is perfect for a romantic evening or relaxed night out with the family.
