“Brasserie” takes on a new meaning with San Francisco’s latest French import, Bon Marché. Inspired by the bustling bistros of Paris, Bon Marché Brasserie & Bar fuses French classics alongside modern dishes, housing a fully functional brewery for good measure. Master Cicerone Rich Higgins (one of the 11 in the world to hold the prestigious title) brews original house beers in classic French styles, while sommelier Allegra Angelo oversees the curated collection of over 100 bottles representing top terroirs from around the globe, focusing on small-batch producers, among them the most approachable for any palate or pairing. Husband and wife duo Matt Sieger and Rikki Garcia helm the kitchen as Executive and Pastry Chefs, respectively, rounding out a robust menu with old-school French favorites and the occasional modern twist -- a balance perfected by passion and years honing their craft. Stop in for lunch, dinner, or signature brew, or check out upcoming hands-on classes in the kitchen (ahem, truffle making on February 6th). Contact your Attaché for reservations, menu picks, or class details.
