If you’re a fan of Netflix series you’ve hopefully heard of “A Chef’s Table”. This documentary style show follows the lives of the world’s most prominent fine dining chef’s. In season 2 they featured San Francisco chef Dominque Crenn of Atelier Crenn and Peitit Crenn. The show is worth checking out and of course the restaurants which we are fortunate to have in our backyard.

Dominique Crenn is originally from Britney, France and thus her food calls on her history. Crenn has two Michelin stars and was rated the world’s best female chef this year.

From “A Chef’s Table”

Atelier Crenn:

Address: 3127 Fillmore St, San Francisco, CA 94123
Artfully presented French dishes with a focus on innovation, served in a minimalist setting. Crenn guides you through your experience and food with poetry, each dish reflecting the story and inspiring the senses. Atelier Crenn is the more formal of the two restaurants and is the essence of fine dining you would expect. 
“A master of modernist cuisine”, Dominique Crenn “stretches the boundaries” of French cooking at this Cow Hollow “treat”, where the “spectacular” tasting menus and “elegantly orchestrated” service are like “a piece of performance art” that makes foodies “swear they’ve died and gone to culinary heaven”; with only a “low-key, natural” setting and a chef-penned poem to introduce the “enchanted evening”, it’s a “memorable” way “to be surprised at every course” – even at “once-in-a-lifetime” prices”. – food critic, Zagat

Petit Crenn:

Address: 609 Hayes St, San Francisco, CA 94102


Chef Dominique Crenn’s cozy, modern French bistro for all-day menus & 2 prix fixe dinner seatings. Crenn’s newest restaurant that offers a casual bistro vibe. This is the perfect way to enjoy the fabulous food with or without a reservation for lunch or dinner. Inspired by her hometown, mother and family, Crenn doesn’t stop short to impress.

“Chef Dominique Crenn has “a real gem” with this Hayes Valley bistro, a “refreshing”, more affordable offshoot of Atelier Crenn furnishing “wonderful” French cooking (inspired by the food of her home in Brittany) via à la carte menus and two nightly seatings for prix fixe meals that feature family-inspired preparations of seafood and vegetables; the open-kitchen space sports a modern look and a vibe that’s “not too pretentious.” – food critic, Zagat
