Reply to "San Francisco Dining Impressions"

Have been there a couple times--both on the top floor, which is less confining than the mezz and the 2nd floor. I rather prefer the rustic, back room ambience of Yountville, but I would also recommend the top of floor of the Jack's location.

The "Crab Caesar" is a bit of a puzzle, and not sure if it will surivive. The boneless pig feet seemed less seasoned than at Yountville, but still quite tasty. The rabbit/sweetbreads were bathed in a spicy thyme-based sauce, and the monkfish in a bouillabaise broth was as good as the one in YV.

On both occasions their dramatic crepe was a bit too dry, and we mentioned it to the server.

We ordered a couple of the Crus Beaujolais, and at the price they were quite complimentary to the food.

The place will be quite popular, and it's satisfying to see Phillipe succeed after being dumped by Dom Chandon several years ago.
