This Michelin-starred French eatery located in Russian Hill offers an intimate, epicurean dining experience. The offerings, a choice between a chef’s tasting and a prix fixe menu are creative and whimsical, and the portions are generous.
"This small, très Parisian establishment has long been a favorite of Francophiles. The restaurant, outfitted in warm woods, copper tones, and white linens, is smartly designed to let chef-owner Roland Passot's whimsical cuisine take center stage. Passot is often seen greeting return customers (and welcoming new ones). Choose from well-apportioned prix-fixe menus of three, four, or five courses ($80, $90, and $100, respectively). The dishes, such as butter-poached lobster with truffle beurre fondue and spiced pepita salad, or the rôti of squab and quail wrapped in crisp and thin potato, are artfully presented and delicious. Vegetarians will be happy to discover a menu of their own ($90)." - Fodor's
"After renovation, Roland Passot comes back stronger than ever. His classic French training is modulated by a California sensibility, with dishes injected with a little humor." - San Francisco Chronicle
Dinner ends with a selection of petit fours to give the evening an extra special je ne sais quoi.
