Restaurant Details

The reason that this quirky little French restaurant still shows up in most-romantic-restaurant lists isn't the fact that Jacqueline Margulis makes each of the savory and sweet soufflés on her short menu for two people. It's that diners are there for the evening, spending a few hours splitting a bottle of wine and waiting for their soufflés to be made to order, the conversation becoming as intimate as their familiarity with the North Beach cafe's weathered wood floorboards and pale blue-green walls. Breach the golden dome of Margulis's airy savory soufflés - gruyere, mushroom, seafood - and they take an eon to collapse. (It takes several bites, in fact, to realize how rich they are.) And the lemon, chocolate, and Grand Marnier soufflés, even more ethereal, are the stuff to inspire envy in molecular gastronomists.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
