Turn the cooking over to the kids—students at the adjacent California School of Culinary Arts, that is—and they'll surprise you. Bustling young Pucksters turn out fresh Belgian endive salads with poached pears and sublime cider-glazed pork chops. The scene-stealer is off the menu: Super-Sexy Mac and Cheese, a zesty twist on the old bore using risotto and Sottocerne, a white truffle cheese. Thursday and Friday it's a prix fixe tasting menu—eight courses at lunch or nine at dinner.
