Dine About Town SF – Lunch
During the last two weeks of January, San Francisco had an event called “Dine About Town.” Basically two restaurant weeks back to back, I finally managed to haul my poor self to a couple of restaurants. Note: Unfortunately, Dine About Town has ended, but you can check out when it’s Restaurant Week in your area at OpenTable!
The first one I went to was last Thursday, January 29, 2009. My friend Sharon and I went to the Financial District and ate at Jeanty at Jacks, a cute French bistro.
That’s us. Yay! The restaurant itself was a cute little place with three stories. My friend had a large wheelie bag with all of her books in it, so we took the elevator all the way up. The top floor has an open ceiling and decor that kind of reminds me of a greenhouse of sorts, but much more airy.
Here’s the menu from when we went. For those of you who don’t know what it is, Dine About Town and Restaurant Week are weeks during which restaurants provide three course fix prixe meals for lunch and/or dinner. In San Francisco, the price for lunch was $21.95, and dinner was $34.95. The price varies from city to city (I know that Los Angeles has a three tier system, with dinners ranging from $26 to $44).
Our first course was the tomato soup with a puff pastry top. Yum!
Sharon ordered the Grilled Flat Iron Steak (good for her, because she was craving steak, haha!). It was good! Tender and juicy and definitely not too well done.
I had the Sole Meuniere. I really liked this dish – better than I liked the steak, definitely. The capers and lemon flowerets were perfect accompaniment to the sole. Yum!
And what meal would be complete without dessert? This was the creme caramel, which was absolutely fabulous. It’s like a flan, sweet, jiggly, and beautiful. I definitely enjoyed this dessert. I kind of wish I had more now, actually!
That was lunch. We thoroughly enjoyed it. I love Dine About Town — especially because I went out again that night for Dine About Town!
