Ocean Beach is a slightly eccentric beach town, not a place diners would expect to find this warm, romantic bistro that evokes a French farmhouse. Executive chef Katherine Humphus, who refined her skills at French Laundry and New York's wd-50, crafted a satisfying French-inspired menu of soups, woodstone oven flatbreads, mussels, and other bistro classics served in cozy dining rooms and a rustic outdoor patio. Go traditional with boeuf bourguignon or chicken fricassee
or spice it up with a flatbread topped with butternut squash, leeks, Italian cheeses, and pumpkin seeds. Don’t leave without a side the popular crispy Brussels sprouts. Tuesday’s “Cheep Date Night” special offers two entrées and bottle of wine for $39.
