Pappos simple, true California cuisine may lack for surprises but is full of delights. The long brick-walled room has felt like a neighborhood favorite from its first month. Chef-owner John Thiel tailors the menu to the moment, such as a pumpkin-apple soup with sage crème fraîche and pecan dust that tastes like a love note to autumn. If you spot roast duck, dont pass it up, and end the meal with a Pappogato, a root beer float with class.
