  • Star Box Food
    A well-known French restaurant in Brisbane, Star Box Food is the ideal spot for fantastic sandwiches and good subs. It's a favorite spot for visitors interested in fantastic food. Defined by its outdoor seating, the restaurant is a fantastic option when you feel like soaking in some of those California rays. No specific attire is required, so feel free to dress casually and comfortably. Also, in addition to its low prices, this won't exactly be the place to earn credit card points (it's cash-only). In fact, you should be able to enjoy a good meal for $11 or $12, and can probably get in and out for $8 if you try. In addition to its quick service (take-out is available), the restaurant also offers delivery, and can even cater an event for you. A reputable favorite for lunch in Central Brisbane, Star Box Food is a solid choice when you're in the mood for unique international cuisine, and want to branch out from the usual Chinese/Mexican/Italian fare. Visitors to the restaurant have the ability to park nearby on the street. Prefer to pedal your way there? Bicycle parking is also provided.

  • Le Central Bistro
    Le Central Bistro: A User’s Guide City’s Oldest Bistro | French Comfort Food | Signature Cassoulet | Quaint Atmosphere Sample Menu Appetizer: fried tofu sprinkled with bonito flakes Sushi: Mexican roll flavored with tempura sweet potato, crab meat, avocado, baked scallop, mozzarella cheese, and chili pepper Entree: chicken katsu curry with locally sourced natural chicken and organic greens Dessert: black sesame mochi ice cream Where to Sit: at the sushi bar to get a front-row seat when chefs prepare your food, or in the garden dining room amid hanging kimonos, obi, and hand fans. Vibe: bright and airy, with exposed brick walls that compliment rich red hues and traditional Japanese art work. Hanging paper lanterns complete the Asian-inspired look, illuminating wall-length booths. Sample Menu Appetizer: escargots de bourgogne—snails with garlic butter and Pernod Specialty: cassoulet—white bean stew with duck confit, Toulouse sausage, and lamb Entree: rack of lamb persillé Dessert: crème brulee Fun Facts Le Central Bistro opened in 1974, a year that, according to the restaurant, makes it the oldest French bistro in San Francisco. The restaurant’s signature cassoulet, a slow-cooked stew, owes its rich flavor to a unique cooking process: the previous day’s remnants are used as the base for the next batch. Currently, Le Central Bistro’s cassoulet has been cooking for over 14,000 days. Where to Sit: at a white-spread table or at the brass-topped bar, which was shipped overseas from France. Inside Tip The bistro is a popular spot for power lunches, so try making a reservation for dinner to avoid the crowds. Vocab Lesson Confit: a French term used to describe food that has been cooked in oil, syrup, or—in the case of some meat—its own fat, and then preserved. Tarte tatin: an upside-down French dessert that features fruit—usually apples—caramelized in butter and sugar. While You’re in the Neighborhood Before: Browse vintage jewelry and fine furnishings at Lang Antique & Estate Jewelry (309 Sutter St.) After: Sip on inventive cocktails, such as the Rye Maple Fizz, at the liquor-focused bar Rickhouse (246 Kearny St.).

  • Atelier Crenn
    Atelier Crenn: A User’s Guide Michelin-Rated Restaurant | Seasonal French Cuisine | Locally Sourced Ingredients | Tasting Menus When to Go: The signature tasting menu, which can include as many as 25 courses, is served Tuesday through Saturday. Of course, they also offer a shorter and less expensive 7–10 course tasting menu Tuesday through Thursday. How to Navigate the Menu: Think of it as a poem rather than an outline of dishes and ingredients. For instance, a menu description such as “mellow serenades of colors licorice and orange” is rendered on the plate as sea urchin torchon with caviar and yuzu. Ask your server or a nearby English professor to help you translate. The Gist: The seasonal French dishes here are as far reaching as they are inventive. Chefs combine locally sourced, seasonal produce with a dash of molecular gastronomy and a generous smattering of artful presentation. Who’s Cooking: Versailles-native Dominique Crenn views the culinary arts as exactly that—an art. Her expressive flair has paid off—she won Iron Chef America, earned the title of Esquire’s “chef of the year” in 2008, and secured a place in history as Indonesia’s first-ever female executive chef. Fun Facts: Like many restaurants, Atelier Crenn makes some of its ingredients—such as butter and bread—in-house. But unlike many, Atelier Crenn also makes its own plates, which they use to create singular presentations for each dish. Artistry runs through the Crenn family’s veins—Chef Crenn’s father created the paintings hanging in the dining room. This hereditary trait clearly surfaces in the chef’s dishes and poetic, off-beat menu. Inside Tips: Turn your phone off. Ateller Crenn asks that all patrons enjoy their meal and conversations unhindered by electronic devices. Don’t worry—Instagram will still be there when you leave. If you have dietary restrictions, let your server know. Though there are no guarantees, the kitchen staff will do their best to accommodate you. While You’re In the Neighborhood Before: Pick up a pair of vintage-inspired earrings to debut at dinner at Fawn(3108 Fillmore Street), a quaint women’s boutique. After: Cut a rug or two at Comet Club (3111 Fillmore Street) before commemorating the evening with pictures in their photo booth.

  • Cafe De La Presse
    Café de la Presse: A User’s Guide French Bistro Cuisine | Vintage Parisian Atmosphere | International Newsstand | Sunny Outdoor Patio Sample Menu Breakfast: omelette au fromage et aux herbes, or omelet with goat cheese and herbs Dinner: confit de canard maison, or confit of duck leg made with “Hudson Valley” Mallard Dessert: a selection of fine artisan cheeses with garnish What to drink: the café’s own signature rosé wine blend (part parelleda, part cabernet sauvignon) The Vibe: The atmosphere echoes back to a Parisian bistro from the 1930s—with a horseshoe-shaped bar, vintage posters, and period light fixtures that hang over TVs playing archival news features and movies. Where to Sit: On the sunny outdoor patio, where the corner of Grant Avenue and Bush Street almost seems like Paris. While You’re Waiting: Browse the newsstand. Café de la Presse stocks and sells more than 200 foreign magazines and newspapers, including many French titles. Press and Praise Summing up what makes the café great, Huffington Post says “The menu (lunch and dinner) is small, but features dishes of great complexity and taste. The wine list is large, mostly French, all excellent.” SFGate calls this “the cornerstone of what many regard as our own little French Quarter…” Vocab Lesson Confit: a French term used to describe food that has been cooked in oil, syrup, or—in the case of some meat—its own fat, and then preserved. While You’re in the Neighborhood Before: Take home a kite, parafoil, or windwheel from Chinatown Kite Shop, which has been putting things in the sky since 1969. After: Works from LEGO, Nike, and others fill the more than 20 exhibits at the Autodesk Gallery (One Market Street). If You Can’t Make It, Try This: Dig into the coq au vin at Café Claude (7 Claude Lane).

  • Garcon
    Garçon!: A User’s Guide French Bistro Cuisine | Rotating Wine List | Locally Sourced Ingredients| Parisian Decor | Daily-Changing Prix Fixe Menu Sample Menu Appetizer: oysters with pink peppercorn mignonette Entree: coq au vin Dessert: beignets and an espresso-hazelnut milkshake Drink: Wake up Call cocktail made with cucumber, lime, vodka, gin, and green chartreuse The Ingredients: Executive Chef Arthur Wall hunts down the freshest in-season and local ingredients he can find, including oysters and cheeses. The everchanging selection of available items inspires Mr. Wall to constantly update his menu, as well as prepare a new prix fixe offering every day. When to Go: On Tuesday, when the restaurant lets patrons bring in bottles of wine with no corkage fee. Inside Tips Ask your server about his or her favorite new wine; the globe-spanning list of bottles changes regularly Don’t plan on stopping by to cure the beginning-of-the-workweek blues—it’s closed on Mondays. If you’re planning a special event or 20-person ouija-board session, ask about reserving the private lounge. Vibe: Paul Reidinger of the San Francisco Bay Guardian wrote “Garçon! might be one of the most Parisian-looking restaurants in the city, with its vintage Dubonnet posters and individual lamps on each table.” Vocab Lesson Coq au vin: Traditional french dish of chicken cooked in red wine. While You’re in the Neighborhood Before: Take in the aromas of more than 400 herbs, essential oils, and flower essences at The Scarlet Sage Herb Company (1173 Valencia St). After: See some live theatre at The Marsh (1062 Valencia St). If You Can’t Make It, Try This: Gaspar Brasserie (185 Sutter St), where you can dine on French cuisine beneath a crystal chandalier.
