Six Things to Know About Le P’Tit Laurent

Helmed by a passionate Parisian chef, Le P’Tit Laurent has been serving classic French food and wine since 2007. Read on to learn more about this charming Glen Park bistro.

  • The accents here are real. Owner Laurent Legendre was born and bred in Paris, and the waitstaff comprises plenty of French speakers who can help you read through the menu so you know your escargot from from your cassoulet.
  • It’s easy to forget you’re not actually in Paris. The dining room is small and cozy, and it’s set up more for comfort and camaraderie than to show off your best bowtie. French posters line the walls, crystal graces the tables, and large windows encourage European-caliber people-watching.
  • The Neighborhood Menu changes every week. Get more bang for your buck with this three-course meal (priced under $30), which features soup or a salad, an entree such as sautéed trout, and dessert.
  • Don’t skip dessert. The pain perdu, a custardy, crunchy french toast, is definitely the crowd favorite here. It doesn’t hurt that it comes drizzled in caramel sauce and topped with a scoop of ice cream, either.
  • They take reservations for Sunday brunch. No need to wait in line for a croque-madame, croissants, smoked salmon, or bottomless mimosas. Did we say bottomless? That’s right.
  • It’s easy to get to. The restaurant is located about a block away from the Glen Park BART stop, and parking shouldn’t be too hard to come by.
