Not to be confused with another, also super-cool restaurant in SF, La Fable is the venture of two Southern France natives who've replaced a 40yr-old cafe with a 0yr-old bistro that -- like Denzel Washington's liver while flying upside-down planes -- is equipped with booze and beer
There's seating for 70 in the main space, which features plenty of bay windows/ photographers in the rafters
Also: there's a 30-person patio that has views of the SF skyline and the orthodontist next door!!
Using local ingredients wherever possible, the main players for the lunch fare are mix-n-matchable sammies like the Vollaile with turkey, red onion, and scratch mayo, or what Rick Carlisle does whenever OJ has the flu
Along with this Parme (French cured ham, mozz, arugula), you can grab a myriad of pastas or charcuterie they get from a Frenchman in Pennsylvania and NOT An American in Paris
Plus, what would a French place be without pastries? Maybe grab one before your next Flight?
