(KCBS) – KCBS Food and Wine Editor Narsai David reviews a French restaurant in San Francisco.
La Folie is classically a 3-star restaurant with a gentle, warm decor, elegance, and just about the perfect size dining room that seats about 50. You can choose the chef’s menu or create your own 3, 4, or 5-course dinner.
Some of the impressive dishes include: asparagus and green garlic soup with lobster and brioche crouton with a poached quail egg in it; tempura fried duck egg over a sweetbread pancake; seared Hudson Valley foie gras with caramelized brooks cherries; warm pig feet and sweetbread terrine was unlike anything I’ve ever had and was magnificent; the trio of rabbit in which the chef uses the loin, rack and the braised leg all together was the most unusual and beautiful presentation I’ve ever seen; and save room for the peach melba baked Alaska.
