Fodor's Review

Two local restaurant celebrities—chef Nancy Oakes and designer Pat Kuleto—are behind this high-profile, high-priced eatery in the 1889 Audiffred Building, a Parisian look-alike that survived the 1906 quake. The Belle-Époque interior and sophisticated American food with a French accent attract well-dressed locals and flush out-of-towners. Count on generous portions of mains such as grilled king salmon, Maine lobster ravioli, and a wood-grilled pork prime rib chop. Save room for one of the dynamite desserts, among them the dark-chocolate brioche custard. There's counter seating for folks too hungry to wait for a table, and an American Wagyu beef burger with Cowgirl Creamery cheese at lunchtime.
