The handsomely designed Cozmo's Corner Grill may be a winner for this plagued Marina spot. A "small bites" menu seems geared to satisfy a bustling, young bar crowd and those sitting down for dinner can expect warm, amenable service and happily-familiar California-inspired cuisine.

THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Cozmo's Corner Grill Restaurant Review

: This busy Marina corner, which has seemed plagued for so long, has finally found a winner with Cozmo's Corner Grill. It's simple really, just design a handsome bar with a space for dining (or is it a dining room with a space for a bar), update it with some chic but unobtrusive details and serve a menu filled with approachable dishes. The locals now consider it a regular spot. Eric Hopfinger is its latest chef and he has brought with him many of the dishes that made him famous at Spoon. Take, for example, the Iceberg Wedge doused with a top-rate buttermilk-Maytag blue cheese dressing and dressed with Bermuda onions and focaccia croutons. Another is his namesake Hoppy's mac 'n' cheese which can arrive deliciously loaded up with cheese or extra loaded with the addition of Hobb's applewood-smoked ham. Other starters include crisp calamari and pancetta-wrapped tiger prawns. Wood oven-fired pizzas, house-made raviolis and pastas, and numerous fish dishes round out the menu. But, if you want to stick to the Hopfinger classics, try the buttermilk-battered fried chicken complete with mashed potatoes, gravy and cole slaw.
