      Citizen Cake makes a spectacular lemon-curd meringue pie. It's at Grove and Gough, in Hayes Valley.

        The one at Mustards in Napa is legendary. The merinque is made with brown sugar and towers serveral inches above the pie. There's a recipe for it in the Mustards cookbook if you like to bake, or head up there and try it for yourself. It's definitely worth the trip.
