Best Restaurant for Girlfriend Maintenance - 2004
You want romance? This tiny, Paris-style bistro stinks of romance. Tucked into a cozy storefront on upper Grant in North Beach, the restaurant serves a clientele that runs heavily toward couples engaged in affaires de coeur (that's "love affairs," you dolt) ranging from first dates to quiet silver-anniversary celebrations. Believe us, she'll melt when she walks into this joint. Most candlelit tables seat only two; the atmosphere is such that you'll keep expecting Ingrid Bergman to saunter through the front door. The featured attraction is the dessert souffl?s -- your choice of chocolate, Grand Marnier, or white chocolate. After one of these babies and a few glasses of wine, she'll forgive you even if you did stay out all night with your, ah, rugby buddies.
