Frances, the namesake of Chef / Owner Melissa Perello's grandmother, is nestled between Noe and Sanchez on 17th Street in the heart of the Castro. This new addition to a bustling neighborhood hopes to lend a warm and comfortable space in which to enjoy its ingredient-driven dishes paired with a tall glass of wine. The menu changes frequently, ever-aiming to showcase the season’s finest offerings. Frances supports the shortest distance between the source and the table, bringing its guests local, sustainable and organic products when available.
