5@5 is a daily, food-related list from chefs, writers, political pundits, musicians, actors, and all manner of opinionated people from around the globe.
At San Francisco's SPQR, chef Matthew Accarrino gives Northern Californian ingredients a little Italian flair.
Accarrino has worked under industry heavyweights Rick Moonen, Todd English, Charlie Palmer and Tom Colicchio. He was also notably recruited in 2004 as opening sous chef of Thomas Keller’s three Michelin-starred Per Se.
