- This neighborhood French bistro has won numerous awards and was named top ten of the Bay Area by Gourmet Magazine and best 20 of San Francisco by Zagat Survey. Locals flock here at Bistro Jeanty nightly, while tourists are abundant during the weekends. The decor is rustic, taken right out of the French countryside. The service is attentive and knowledgeable. The menu pays homage French home-style cooking. The Coq au Vin is a knockout while the chicken and the mushrooms are engrossed with the rich flavor of the red wine reduction sauce. The dish is presented in a pristine white serving bowl, a beautiful contrast to the vibrant burgundy color of the dish. No trip to Bisto Jeanty is complete without the Citron Givre, lemon sorbet. This desert showcases the chef's personality and commitment to refined homey foods. The lemon sorbet is served in a hollowed lemon, presumably the same lemon used to make the sorbet. The lemon is plated whole, reconstructed on the plate. The presentation is whimsical and the sorbet is a perfect balance of sweet and tart. Throw in a world-class wine selection and you have completed a wonderful dinner by a renowned chef from the Champagne region of France. In 2007, the inaugural year of the Michelin Guide San Francisco, Bay Area & Wine Country, Bistro Jeanty was awarded a Michelin Star.
