Chez Maman West
Where we've featured it
This French spot has a location in Hayes Valley too, but that neighborhood has too many structures made of shipping containers to easily convince someone you’re not trying that hard. Plus, the one in Potrero Hill looks and feels like the neighborhood restaurant that everyone should fight to have close to them. The menu includes French staples like mussels and fries, French onion soup, and, because we’re in SF, a roast chicken to go with your garlic mashed potatoes. None of the food is overly showy, but it’s a level of comfort food that’s hard to beat.
