Marlena is an upscale restaurant that’s perfect for celebrating an anniversary, birthday, or any other special occasion. But this Bernal Heights spot also has the feel of a relaxed neighborhood restaurant that’s ideal for popping into for a chill weeknight dinner. The name of the game here (and your only option) is the four-course prix fixe menu ($65) that changes pretty often - but fresh, seasonal ingredients always shine. You might end up with a rich Brentwood corn bisque poured tableside, a soft Hokkaido scallop topped with pickled strawberries and a lacy squid ink tuile, or a crispy-skinned bass with smoked roe beurre blanc. Whatever you get, each dish, down to the fantastic desserts, will be beautifully presented and packed with a range of flavors and textures.
