A slice of Paris in the heart of North Beach
Smack dab in the heart of North Beach, San Francisco’s Little Italy
, this sweet little restaurant looks hewn from a quiet neighborhood of Paris. The restaurant's namesake, owner, and chef Jacqueline Margulis, is French and has been making one thing and thing only since opening in 1979: flawless soufflés. Sweet and savory, seafood, gruyere, lemon, strawberry, the French creations are each made by hand, and tower over their white ramekins when pulled piping hot from the oven. A white-aproned waiter cuts and serves them at the table. The intimate 12-table restaurant with soft green walls has long been a go-to date-night adnr anniversary spot, and often tops San Francisco
's "most romantic restaurants" list. Make sure to pass through the kitchen and say bonsoir to Jacqueline who will be whisking away, creating egg white magic better than anyone in the city.
