Pre-planned tasting menus let diners sample as many as seven different items off the menu in one meal. Although the menu constantly changes to accommodate locally sourced ingredients, it has included a tagine of Marin lamb ($25.50) and seared day boat scallops over saffron risotto ($28.50).

Rue Saint Jacques Restaurant

The anticipation of finding out what executive chef Eric Lanvert chose to include on today's menu is part of the charm of dining at Rue Saint Jacques, where dishes are crafted from organic and sustainably farmed ingredients whenever possible. Lanvert draws inspiration from his childhood in southern France's Roussillon region and relies on ingredients from local producers, area farmers' markets, and gourmet food fights. The San Francisco Bay Guardian remarked in 2009 that despite their Californian origins, "the dishes rely on a timeless appeal and are very much the ones you'd find in countless neighborhood bistros in Paris."

The intimately sized dining room strikes a balance between refinement and rustic allure, featuring plaster-textured walls and exposed ceiling beams that tower over crisp white tablecloths.
