Small, intimate French bistro near Mission. The menu has few selections,but they are prepared with care and are delicious! Grilled octopus is succulent and has a sauce that accentuates the flavors of both the octopus and the grilled vegetables. We had the duck and the...More

top-of-the-line restaurants now compete with the
city’s best for fashionable diners. Indulge as the
