A native of Paris, Executive Chef Christian Nam-Hee sharpened his knife skills and his palate at l'Ecole de Paris des M?tiers de la Table. Today he lets his know-how blossom and wander in the kitchen of Bijou Restaurant & Bar, blending the culinary traditions of his homeland with the flavors found in northern California's seasonal organic ingredients. From his pans and cutting boards spring forth sweet-potato frites, quail stuffed with napa cabbage, and other dishes that embody the menu's inventive fusion spirit. To complement such an aesthetically poignant dining experience, the space itself?designed by DesignPlus's Pia Thomas?remains sleek and focused. The centerpiece is the bar, which glows a dreamy, iridescent amber that's complemented by ring chandeliers and absorbed by Italian leather chairs, a lounge area's plush velvet cushions, and tabletop black holes.

Grégoire: A User’s Guide Fast French Cuisine | Famous Potato Puffs | Fancy Takeout | Monthly Changing Menus Sample Menu Sandwich: buttermilk-fried chicken with spicy coleslaw Side: crispy potato puffs Dessert: bread pudding Meet the Chef: Grégoire Jacquet brought his sensibility from his home of Versailles and his cooking techniques from an apprenticeship in the kitchen of a four-star restaurant. After jet-setting to the various kitchens of the Ritz-Carlton as an executive sous chef, he settled down to entertain Bay Area taste buds with a constantly updated menu of quick, accessible French favorites. In the Pantry Bread from Semifreddi's Eggs from Glaum Egg Ranch Dairy from Straus Family Creamery Sustainably farmed chicken from Petaluma Poultry Inside Tips There are a handful of seats at the counter (Oakland) or outside (Berkeley), but if you're feeding a group, make it takeout. The kitchen's small, so call ahead to order takeout if you have time constraints. While You Wait: Plot what you'll build once you've emptied Gregoire's octagonal takeout boxes, which seem almost too cute and too sturdy to toss in the recycling bin. Trophy Cabinet One of The Bay Area's 9 Top Takeout Spots, San Francisco Magazine, 2005 Best Takeout, East Bay Express, 2004 Potato puffs named one of San Francisco Magazine's Best 125 Things to Eat, 2003 When to Go: You'll find Gregoire's most beloved dishes and slightly lower prices at lunch. Vocab Lesson Cornichon: French for "gherkin," these small, tart pickles traditionally accompany pâté and other French dishes. Croque-monsieur: Originating in French cafés, this pressed sandwich is filled with ham, gruyère, and béchamel. (A fried egg turns it into a croque-madame.)
