This local favorite offers casual French fare for lunch and dinner, as well as weekend brunches that people line up for. Zazie, is also near Golden Gate Park and just up the hill from Haight Ashbury, in one of my favorite San Francisco residential neighborhoods, Cole Valley. Dinner might feature chicken liver pate, poached salmon or flank steak with mashed potatoes and every dish is prepared in that impeccable way the French are known for. As for the brunch of eggs benedict prepared in about eight different ways, with a large glass or fresh squeezed orange juice and an oversized bowl of cafe latte, it is sublime.
