  • The Refuge
    The Three Faces of The Refuge Signature Pastrami Owner Matt Levin demonstrates his love of Europe in many ways, but it’s chiefly through The Refuge’s pastrami, where Levin saw intersection between Jewish and French traditions. With help from wife and co-owner Melanie Roth and Executive Chef Michael Greuel, Levin created a pastrami inspired by European-style delicatessens, such as Langer’s in Los Angeles and Katz’s in New York. The chefs start with a custom-trimmed section of beef navel, carefully season and smoke it until the meat reaches a buttery tenderness, and then carve it and pile it high on toasted rye bread. Belgian Drafts After the pastrami, Levin’s Euro-centric affections are next best expressed through The Refuge’s selection of Belgian beers, with roughly 20 offered on draft at any given time. Selections from breweries such as La Trappe, St. Bernardus, and Kerkom make regular appearances. You can also opt for a Belgian-style beer from a regional microbrewery. House-Ground Hamburgers The Refuge’s penchant for gourmet meats continues with its hamburgers. Chefs grind a blend of certified natural Angus beef every day, and then grill each 8-ounce patty to a medium-well doneness. Try the pastrami burger to sample both of the restaurant’s house-favorite meats on one bun.

  • Cuisinett
    Four Things to Know About Cuisinett Owner Geoffroy Raby envisioned Cuisinett as a laid-back spot to indulge in the type of comfort food he ate growing up in France. More to the point, he wanted to convey that French food can be fun and casual, not just the stuff of snooty fine-dining establishments. Read on to learn more about his unpretentious brand of French cuisine: Raby enlisted Chef Guillaume Bienaime to bring his vision to life. Chef Bienaime tapped into the experience he gained cooking French cuisine at Marche in Menlo Park. Its menu blends dishes from many regions of France. Options range from quiche lorraine, hailing from Metz, to merguez frites, a dish of spicy lamb sausage and french fries popular in Marseille. The menu clearly denotes which dishes are gluten-free. More than a dozen such options exist, including niçoise salad and pork chops with dijon mustard. The dining room only seats about two-dozen people. It doesn’t take reservations either, so guests should plan to wait or sit on a stranger’s lap during peak hours.
