Fodor's Expert Review Frenchish

$$$ UNM/Nob Hill French
Innovative, flavorful, fun, and, indeed, French-ish. In 2016, Nob Hill welcomed the return of the renowned culinary team of Nelle Bauer and James Beard award semifinalist, Jennifer James, and this coolly modern spot with its refreshing bistro menu. Yes, there’s the perfectly turned grilled beef rib eye, but also a winter squash–and–sautéed greens buckwheat crepe, rocket salad (with hazelnuts and pear), a french onion burger (of course), ruby trout filet, their now famous devilish egg, and a very popular carrot dog. A three-course prix-fixe (finishes with a chocolate pot de crème) is on offer, as well as daily specials. Happy Hour & a Half happens daily (5 pm–6:30 pm)—you can cobble together a satisfying meal then for a bit less than the toll for the plats principaux found on the standard menu.
