Zazie (French), San Francisco, California
Located in an old schoolhouse in the heart of Cole Valley, Zazie is a restaurant that can compete with any in the city. From traditional French dishes to new-school twists, Zazie is sure to have something you'll enjoy. The decorations are classic, with French movie posters covering the deep yellow walls. Then comes the food. Zazie's Le Canard duck was perfectly cooked - tender and juicy - with Hericot Verts (green beans) and tasty fingerling potatoes in a mustard glaze. The restaurant's succulent Hanger Steak was delicious, again grilled to perfection. For dessert, the Creme Brulee and Chocolate Mousse were the highlights of the day, each very smooth and creamy. Zazie deserves a try from anyone far and wide. It is a true insight into the sheer depth of the San Francisco culinary scene.
