Cocotte Restaurant Review

: Occupying a Nob Hill space outfitted by designer Jean-Michel Fabregon that was formerly home to Hyde Street Bistro, earthy-hued and cozy Cocotte has the same owner-chef, Sancerre-born Mikael Audry, as the departed HSB. Audry uses mostly organic ingredients produced in Northern California to create rustic favorites from his homeland: sea bass bouillabaisse, rabbit à la moutarde and mussels marinière spark Gallic memories --- not of Paris, per se, but of lingering village repasts. Slow-cooked coq au vin, golden-crowned goat cheese potato gratin, and sweet dreams banana crème brûlée are signature dishes sure to warm up any foggy night. Sweet and savory weekend brunch options include lobster salad, duck confit omelets, croques monsieur and --- surprise! --- french toast, made with almond milk and fresh berry coulis. Groups of diners are encouraged to share dishes, tapas-style.
