  • Vanessa's Bistro 2
    Executive chef Vanessa Dang follows up her first blockbuster of French-inspired Vietnamese dishes with this intimate sequel promising elegant small-plate options and explosive flavors. The menu pokes sleepy taste buds with shareable small plates such as maple-leaf duck-confit lettuce wraps ($9) and tuna-and-salmon poke with ginger, avocado, mango, and cucumber-and-tomato salsa ($9). Full-sized entrees combine intercontinental palates with mouth-warping orders of cumin-marinated jumbo prawns and garlic noodles ($16) or a rack of lamb marinated with Dijon-mustard peppercorn in a Bing-cherry reduction ($25). Fill out abridged meals with a glass from the saga-worthy, 150-bottle wine list or a sweet-tooth-regaling Fuji-apple-and-coconut egg roll ($8).

  • Little Red Bistro
    Little Red Bistro, an idyllic café splashed in vivid crimson accents, suffuses its intimate interior with eyelid-unfurling aromas wafting off three kinds of espresso. As the sun inches over the horizon and the boogeyman dives beneath the bed, the bistro’s chefs fold 17 kinds of crepes, ranging from sweet creations stuffed with peanut butter and jelly to savory pockets piled with green eggs and ham. Golden sear marks color seven piping-hot paninis that swaddle gourmet ingredients such as prosciutto, pesto, and roasted red peppers. Sips of frappes flavored with white chocolate and irish cream forge a fitting accompaniment to the café’s homemade desserts, which rotate daily.

  • Artisan Bistro
    Artisan Bistro: A User’s Guide Michelin-Rated | Californian-French Cuisine | Seasonal Menu | Patio Seating Sample Menu First course: roasted celeriac soup with dungeness Maine lobster Second course: pepper-crusted duck breast Third course: banana-pecan-streusel bread pudding Where to Sit: Make a reservation for the picturesque backyard patio, but since the Michelin Guide's rated the restaurant as "comfortable," you should be happy in any seat. Inside Tips Try the six-course tasting menu. Chef John Marquez has worked at such bold-name establishments as Picasso, French Laundry, Per Se, Coi, and Fringale Restaurant, so he knows his way around a kitchen—and around taste buds. Bring a tape measure and a picture of your living room, as Artisan Bistro displays and sells abstract artist John Earl's portraits. If you're looking for a great deal, $30 gets you a three-course lunch that might include chilled english pea soup, lamb-leg bolognese, and a trio of sorbets. While You’re in the Neighborhood: If you can't find a painting that you like at the restaurant, head down the road to Lafayette Art Gallery (3420 Mount Diablo Boulevard), which features contemporary works.

  • La Sen Bistro
    La Sen Bistro blends culinary traditions from across the world, from Vietnam, to France, to sunny California. Split between reds and whites sourced from Californian and French vineyards, its wine list reflects the California-French cuisine emerging from the kitchen. Chefs coat duck breast in a honey-pepper sauce and craft a traditional French onion soup with garlic croutons and broiled ementale cheese. They also douse salmon in saffron sauce, pair garlic pommes frites with a ribeye steak, and fill a vegetarian lasagna with gruyere and eggplant, a tastier alternative to vegetarian lasagna made with oak leaves.
