Still one of the hottest tickets in town, this small space belts out a delicious bacon beignet. You come to see what chef/owner Melissa Perello will execute. Standouts on the California-French menu are the savory bavette steak, duck confit, and baked clams with bacon cream. The apple galette for dessert hits all the right notes. The space is simply designed with a limited number of tables, so it can be extraordinarily difficult to get a reservation, except at 10 pm. Service is professional and warm.
