The chef: Jacob Town, executive chef of Piccino in Dogpatch.
What he cooks: Local Belfiore burrata and crispy fried polenta ($13) with seasonal additions like Dirty Girl Produces’ Early Girl tomatoes and basil agrodolce. “It’s definitely one of our bestsellers,” says Town.
What he craves: “I’m a big breakfast guy, and I love nothing better than the corned beef hash from Pork Store Cafe in the Haight. Get it with sourdough toast and two medium-over eggs, and you’re all set. It’s by far my biggest guilty pleasure, calorically and in terms of carbon footprint.”
