Description: 40 years ago and decades before it became popular, Jesse Cool led a movement of preparing and serving only fresh, in-season, organic and local...ingredient-driven meals. The flagship of that movement, Late for the Train (1979-2004) and Flea St. Cafe. Today we know sustainability works. When Jesse set out to open her first organic restaurants, critics said it couldn't be done. Yet, along with a dedicated staff and host local farmers, vintners, fishermen and ranchers, Jesse has proven that Sustainable Cuisine is not only viable but even a preferable business model too. To this day, Flea St. Cafe continues to garner recognition and awards for environmental achievement, business sustainability, and community service. Flea St. Cafe's kitchen is led by chef Charlie Parker. With a deep respect for its own unique culinary traditions as well as those of global trends in cuisine and diversity, Flea St Cafe has aged into one of the nations truly iconic sustainable dining locations.

Visited the Flea Street Cafe on the Alameda de las Pulgas for the first time in a couple years. My things have really improved since they stopped serving lunch to concentrate on dinner!! The seasonal menus are fabulous, the preparation of exquisitely fresh ingredients was superb, and the service excellent and lots of fun. FSC is now definitely the best place for dinner in Menlo Park by a mile!! By the way, the tripadvisor listings for this area are HOPELESSLY out of date--many of the restaurants listed are gone, have changed ownership or are on a downhill slide. But Flea Street is bucking the trend...it is up two notches and is now one of the very best dinner spots on the Peninsula.
