Over on Russian Hill, Urban Daddy has word that ~SEVEN HILLS~, the restaurant that moved into 1550 Hyde’s location, is due to open for dinner this Friday. (I knew about the seven hills of Rome, but never realized San Francisco clocked in at seven as well.) Chef-owner Alexander Alioto’s seasonal menu includes starters like a halibut crudo, bone marrow, and a pumpkin sformato; housemade pastas like mushroom tortelli and Dungeness crab cannelloni; and a few main dishes, like chicken under a brick and prawn spiedini. The international wine list was created by Master Sommeliers Chuck Furuya and Nunzio Alioto. The front of house will be managed by partner Alexis Solomou. Open for dinner Tue-Thu 5pm-10pm, Fri-Sun 5pm-10:30pm. 1550 Hyde St. at Pacific, 415-775-1550.
