STATE BIRD PRO­VI­SIONS  Amer­i­can. It’s worth the ef­fort to get a reser­va­tion at Bon Ap­petit mag­a­zine’s 2012 Res­tau­rant of the Year (and the 2013 James Beard Award win­ner for Best New Res­tau­rant), run by one of Food and Wine mag­a­zine’s Best New Chefs of 2013, Stu­art Bri­oza, along with his wife Nicole Krasin­ski. This cre­ative and in­no­va­tive Miche­lin star res­tau­rant does dim sum, Amer­i­canstyle. Carts wheel around small plates, and din­ers can point to choose what they’d like. The menu changes fre­quently based on sea­sonal avail­abil­ity, but the house spe­cialty re­mains the epony­mous “state bird,” a crispy half quail served with sea­sonal “pro­vi­sions.” D (M-Sa). www.state­birdsf.com. 1529 Fillmore St., 415.795.1272. $$$ Map 2, H4
