Frances

From a Michelin-starred ex-Fifth Floorer, Frances is a casual, Cali-terranean comfort food spot ordained with a mini walnut wine bar and rows of intimate two-tops against cream colored walls studded with classy black n' white prints. Grog includes two blended house wines on tap (plus 100 by the bottle) and daily, pallet cleansing "Market Shots" (juices spiked with wine, beer, or liquor), while daily-changing grub ranges from pork confit w/ mustard jus, to smoked bacon beignets, to Boccalone lardo-enrobed cod, which'll result in a Boccalone lardo-enrobed you.
