Best French bistro steak frites in SF?

  • 6
  • Share

I'm looking for a place in SF to have steak frites now that Jeanty's is no longer in the city. I see lots of skirt steak and hangar steak on menus, but I want a nicer cut, preferably a ribeye or NY strip or something like that. I'm not really wanting to go to an American steakhouse, but a French bistro kind of place.

Any suggestions?

  1. Jeanty was my go-to place, too.

    Chez Papa Resto, Fringale, South Park Cafe, and Cafe de la Presse seem likely substitutes to me.

    Corrected: I was confusing Chez Papa Resto with 54 Mint.

      JEANTYYYYYY!! why? why? why? .... sorry.

      Southpark Cafe does a pretty good steak frites: http://www.southparkcafesf.com/menu_f...

      And Restaurant Ducroix, but I think they are still only open for lunch: http://sanfrancisco.menupages.com/res...

      1. Didn't have the steak frites, but Des Amis is also a possibility. I did like the fries there.

        1. The steak frites at Alamo Square cafe are highly underrated and quite delicious, although it's probably not one of the higher cuts of steak

          1. There have been discussions on this topic here before. You might want to do a search to find the past threads.

            Florio (on Fillmore St.) is worth trying. They serve a rib-eye & frites for two and a hangar steak & frites for one.
