Renee Erickson’s (The Walrus & the Carpenter, Barnacle) Fremont restaurant, the Whale Wins, centers around rustic cuisine roasted in their wood-fired oven and served in a converted warehouse that is open and airy, decked out in the colors of the sea. House pickles and Matiz sardines on toast with curried tomato paste whet the appetite for mains like roasted half chicken with tonnato, toast and bread or butter-pickled rhubarb. Save room for a dessert of butter-roasted zucchini bread.
