Cuisine French

More than $75

Its name may mean "the folly," but a meal at Roland Passot's longstanding French gem has been a safe bet for many years. Timelessly understated, La Folie's curtained dining room features lofty ceilings, richly upholstered banquettes, and polished wood; the more casual lounge next door feels airy and open. Classic French technique gets a California twist on Passot's menus, available in a variety of configurations (including a vegetarian option). Meals begin with a spread of canapés including rich foie gras bonbons, egg shells stuffed with mushroom fondue, and creamy salmon-mascarpone pinwheels. Then it's on to the main event with courses like warm pig's feet, sweetbreads, and lobster terrine over lentil salad; a duo of tender duck breast and rich leg confit with citrus, baby turnips, and passion fruit gastrique; or a warm Edam cheese soufflé with fromage blanc sorbet, bacon, and sesame tuile. As is to be expected from an upscale French establishment, the wine list focuses on Gallic labels with a soupçon of Californian vintages. A sizable and gracious staff keeps treats coming between courses, resulting in a moderate and pleasantly romantic buzz among couples out for a special evening.
