Why did we dine here? – 1760 is a New American restaurant from Giancarlo Paterlini and Suzette Gresham who run Italian powerhouse Acquerello. Named for its street address, this place has received some positive press and coupled with their pedigree, it was an easy decision to give it a try. Far more casual than their other restaurant, this place has industrial modern decor and even has a long communal table. A long narrow bar is situated on one wall. This space has housed many restaurants over the years including the good old Rendezvous cafe.
Acquerello Restaurant (which means “watercolor” in Italian) is an upscale Italian restaurant in the Polk Gulch Area of San Francisco, just off Van Ness. For over 20 years, they have been serving traditional dishes from all regions of Italy in a lighter, more contemporary style. Co-owners Giancarlo Paterlini and Chef Suzette Gresham-Tognetti work together to provide an unparalleled Italian dining experience.
