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.
The bistro is a popular spot for power lunches, so try making a reservation for dinner to avoid the crowds.
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.

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 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.
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.
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.
