  • Frances
    The Three Faces of Frances Daily Changing Menu The food at Frances changes daily. It reflects what chef Melissa Perello gathers from local markets, farms, and purveyors with whom she's developed personal relationships. Because of this ever-changing nature, the menu here is truly simple—it's broken into only four categories: appetizers, entrees, sides, and bouchées (small, tapas-style plates). In the past, the entree section has listed everything from Monterey black cod to chicken roulade with brown-butter vinaigrette. House Wine by the Ounce Frances' beverage director, Paul Einbund, blends all of the restaurant's house wines at a nearby winery before bringing them over in kegs and serving them on tap. The staff then delivers them to tables in elegant 16- or 20-ounce carafes, which are marked in 2-ounce increments so diners only pay for what they drink. A word of warning: don't get too attached to any one house wine, as Paul's blends change frequently to complement the menu and season. Functional, Intimate Space Tucked away in a residential slice of Castro, Frances squeezes every bit it can out of the space it occupies. Less than 50 seats are available, and most are on a bench that runs along the outer wall. There's also a 10-seat countertop in the bar section that’s available on a first-come, first-served basis. To separate these two areas, a partition, which doubles as a functioning wine rack, divides the restaurant down the middle. Such limited space means that the largest party Frances can typically accommodate is four.

  • Philz Coffee
    Philz Coffee A coffeehouse that doesn’t serve espresso? Yes, it exists—and it’s pretty popular, to boot. Philz Coffee specializes in one thing: blended coffee that’s sold by the bag or served made-to-order. A classic Philz brew is made one cup at a time—in a manner similar to a pour-over—with cream, sugar, and fresh mint on top. Many consider it to be the perfect cup of coffee, and it’s all thanks to years of dedication behind the scenes. Phil Jaber, the founder of Philz, percolated on how to make the perfect cup for more than 25 years before turning his Mission grocery store into a coffeehouse in 2003. Since then, his company has grown into more than a dozen locations that produce 30+ unique coffee blends, each one combining up to seven different beans sourced from all over the world. Despite the company’s rapid growth, Phil and his son Jacob, who acts as CEO, take their role as a neighborhood coffeehouse very seriously. In an effort to create a welcoming, relaxed environment, they makes a point to hire friendly baristas who are as passionate about coffee as they are. Philz is also committed to being green, offering a discount for bringing in a mugs and giving away coffee grinds, which customers might use to nourish their gardens or rub all over their body to create a convincing Swamp Thing costume. Tesora At Philz, each coffee blend is given a name that encapsulates its taste, Phil’s vision, and the process by which he created it. For instance, the very first Philz blend, Tesora, is named for the Italian word meaning “treasure.” A medium roast with a toasty and nutty aroma, Tesora—which took Phil seven years to develop—is what Philz employees recommend to first-timers. The easy-to-drink brew finishes clean and smooth, and, like most of Philz blends, it has a very low acidity level. This prevents stomachaches commonly associated with drinking coffee and shotgunning lemons.

Vocab Lesson Bistronomy: locally grown, organic ingredients served with style amid a casual, convivial environment. Cornichon: French for "gherkin," these small, tart pickles traditionally accompany pâté and other French dishes. While You’re in the Neighborhood: Before or after your meal, head around the corner to the Castro Theatre (429 Castro Street), a historic movie house built in 1922. It screens classic and recent releases, and the owners host singalongs to the likes of Grease and Frozen and occasionally fire up a Wurlitzer organ before the show. If You Can’t Make It, Try This: Whip up authentic French bistro dishes at home with guidance from the chef’s cookbook, Nick Ronan: The Kissing Chef.
