“Those seeking to relive the days of Veritable Quandary should head to Q Restaurant, which boasts mostly former VQ staff, including head chef Annie Cuggino. But Q is developing its own style, with a large bar area with on-point cocktails, and a modern dining room for plates like ricotta gnocchi and braised oxtail and house-made fettuccine with Dungeness crab, scallops, and wild prawns.”
