Cuisine Mediterranean

$50 to $75

The original colonist of Hayes Valley's now-bustling restaurant row, this "green fairy" still has plenty of sparkle, thanks to its timeless brasserie atmosphere and classic French- and Mediterranean-inspired menu. Even a lowly chicken breast gets the magic treatment here, with crunchy skin, perfectly wilted lacinato kale, and swirls of luscious Bourbon-yam purée. The same goes for a little gem lettuce salad with fine herbs dressed in a red wine-shallot vinaigrette. Perched between formal and casual, the restaurant draws relaxed alfresco lunchers with dogs by day and stylish symphony or opera patrons by night. In either incarnation, it's a lovely place for a cocktail-a few may earn you a wink from those fairies, flitting across the dining room mural.
