Bon Appetit! California Meets France at Jardiniere

James Beard award winner Traci Des Jardins’ Jardinière restaurant is one of San Francisco’s finest fusion dining experiences that marries quintessential Californian and French flavors; paying homage to Chef Des Jardins' Mexican and Louisianian-French Acadian heritage. After dabbling with the top chefs in Europe, stopping over in Manhattan and finally returning to California to follow her culinary dream, she opened Jardiniere in 1997.

The menu rides the wave of the freshest seasonal ingredients and allows guests to test the innovation that comes from the kitchen on a daily basis. Yes, Chef and Marcus will be coming to Des Jardins' legendary spot to host a demo lunch tomorrow, so be sure to stay tuned for behind-the-scenes pictures and updates from the city by the bay!
