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.

This passion propelled him into a career as a chef, working at restaurants with Michelin stars and James Beard nominations before opening up L'Ardoise Bistro. The Vibe: The bistro exudes Parisian charm. Diners are surrounded by dark woods, deep-red walls, and floral carpets flecked with red and gold. According to the San Francisco Bay Guardian, “It would not be difficult to imagine Proust in the next room, scribbling away.” While You’re Waiting: Peep through the tiny kitchen window. You might be able to spot Chef Clement inside, putting the finishing touches on your meal. Vocab Lesson L'Ardoise: French for “chalkboard.” Tarte tatin: an upside-down French dessert that features fruit—usually apples—caramelized in butter and sugar.

  • Chile Pies
    Native to New Mexico, the green chile is packed with vitamin C and produces an endorphin high with each bite, so it's no wonder that it's the starring ingredient at Chile Pies (Sweet & Savory). The all-purpose veggie makes its journey from Bueno Foods, a half-century old food company that's also native to the state, directly to Chile Pies' made-from-scratch dishes. It then casts its capsaicin spell on sweet dishes, like the house specialty green chile apple pie, and savory plates, like veggie green chile stew. Red chiles also make their way into a variety of sweet and savory pies, both handheld and plated, as well as sandwiches, salads, and house-made drinks.
