The produce is good here in California. Very good. Sometimes good cooking is little more than good shopping- there’s an art to allowing the essence of the food tell its own story. Melissa Perillo, executive chef and owner of Frances, certainly knows this. She’s inspired by her weekly visits to the farmers markets of San Francisco, and the menu varies with the Northern California growing season.

Press (as quoted from the Frances website):

Since opening Frances, the restaurant has received much critical acclaim, earning a James Beard “Best New Restaurant” nomination in 2010, Michelin star, was named an Esquire magazine “Best New Restaurant” by John Mariani, was one of Bon Appétit magazine’s “Ten Best New Restaurants in America” in 2010, and received a 3.5-star food rating from the San Francisco Chronicle.
