I agree with *most* of these. I would make the following changes if this was my list: replace Hibino with Ki - not only is the ambiance nicer, but Ki is by far the best sushi in BoCoCa, Hibino takes 2nd place but by a long shot. The sounds of the water wall is so relaxing and the food is always really fresh and artfully prepared. Additionally, while Brucie is good, the best Italian is Verde on Smith for sure. Much more consistent and although it lacks the 'store' Brucie has (which is a cute touch) it has a far more satisfying menu, a better brunch, and a really beautiful garden patio.
