Atelier Crenn

Top choice french in The Marina, Fisherman’s Wharf & the Piers

The menu arrives in the form of a poem, and then come the signature white chocolate spheres filled with a burst of apple cider. If this seems an unlikely start to a meal, just wait for the geoduck rice tart in a glass dome frosted by liquid nitrogen, and about a dozen more plates inspired by the childhood of chef Dominique Crenn in Brittany, France.

In 2018, Crenn won a James Beard Award, and her restaurant was awarded a coveted third Michelin star. Bookings for each month are released at a specified time and date two months in advance and fill up quickly; check the website for details.
