From Our Editors

Le Charm French Bistro

French Standards | Prix-Fixe Dinners | Garden Patio | Live Jazz

Sample Menu

  • Appetizer: baked escargots with garlic-parsley butter
  • Entree: coq au vin with mashed potatoes
  • Dessert: apple tarte tatin with caramel sauce
  • Wine: whatever your waiter recommends

When to Go: Swing by on a summery Thursday night—there’s usually live jazz on the garden patio, so you can watch the flowers dancing.

Trophy Case

  • It received the Michelin Guides’s Bib Gourmand award in 2013.
  • SF Weekly praised it for “guileless food, flawless service, and a peerless croque madame.”

Vocab Lesson
Beurre blanc: literally, “white butter”; besides the butter, this French sauce typically contains white wine, vinegar, shallots, and lemon juice.
Cassoulet: a slow-cooked dish of white beans, duck, and pork sausage from southwestern France; it was named after the earthenware dish it’s traditionally cooked in.

While You’re in the Neighborhood
Before: Stop into the French-inspired Ensoma (352 6th Street) for a relaxing foot-reflexology session.

After: End the evening with a final glass of wine at Jamber Wine Pub (858 Folsom Street).

If You Can’t Make It, Try This: Grab some beef bones and white wine and try replicating the restaurant’s recipe for french onion soup at home.
