Best Tarte Tatin: The Black Pearl

Best Tarte Tatin

The Black Pearl remains one of the standout restaurants in the entire Bay area because every dish applies impeccable technique to the freshest ingredients. Shortly after Jon Palmer Claridge’s CL review last year, he spent five weeks in France, where, he reports, he didn’t have a single tarte tatin that even came close to the version served at the Black Pearl night after night — thin mouth-watering fans of caramelized apples with flaky pastry from your dreams.
