Hg2 : The Hedonist

Café Jacqueline

North Beach puts you in the mood for romance and Café Jacqueline closes the deal, potentially more romantic than all other San Francisco restaurants. The dining room is tiny and unassuming, boasting a handful of tables. It’s quiet in there, all the better to get to know your companion and await the speciality of the house: soufflés. Start with a simple salad, share a savory soufflé with mushroom or prosciutto for dinner, and polish off the meal with a chocolate soufflé for two. Café Jacqueline is as unique, personal, and passionate as dinners can get. Hurry before the chef artiste decides she’s had enough of cooking every night. Be sure to make a reservation; there’s no maneouvering room in a place this small. You say you want romance? Chef Jacqueline Margulis is ready to romance you right down to your toes. Her tiny, country-French restaurant serves almost nothing but soufflés, each lovingly prepared by Jacqueline herself and sized to share. It is tempting to call the simple, quiet setting quaint, but that would diminish the gravity of what Jacqueline accomplishes with her airy creations. The ambiance is heavy with anticipation, both of soufflés and of passion. The place fills up quickly, so call ahead to reserve a table. And for the love of God, order the Grand Marnier soufflé for dessert.
