In a homey corner of booming Hayes Valley, Chef Dominique Crenn serves a menu more approachable (in both technique and price) than her acclaimed Atelier Crenn. With its open kitchen, chalkboard menus, and nautical feel inspired by Crenn’s native Brittany, Petit Crenn is a hit among locals. While the eats are rib-sticking-think wood-roasted trout with cider sabayon, or rustic bread slathered with espelette aïoli and sautéed mushrooms-the execution of this kitchen is precise, as evidenced in the exquisite gem lettuce salad-which is so much more than its name suggests-or even the rolled omelette tucked with fragrant herbs. Whether you opt for the early evening à la carte seating or multi-course prix-fixe, expect to leave sated and smitten.
