ChouChou — A Taste Of Paris In San Francisco…..
Meet Chef Owner, H. Michaels and his partner, Sous Chef, M. Habil
ChouChou (pronounced “Shoo-Shoo“) an authentic French Restaurant offers a Provencal feel, a casual yet chic bistro atmosphere located in San Francisco, strives to bring the spirit of Paris to Forest Hill. The casually elegant bistro showcases rustic Old World cooking with a modern French twist, paired with a thoughtful wine list. Chef Michaels invites you to experience the warm personalized service that is ChouChou.
Though separated from Provence by the continental US and Atlantic Ocean, ChouChou strives to bring the French region’s spirit to Forest Hill. drizzling cuts of grass-fed filet mignon with green peppercorn sauce and truffle mashed potatoes, and accompanying duck leg confit with mushroom duxelles. Along with buttery, herb-infused escargot not to mention the seared foie gras, over caramelized pineapple in muscat sauce with oven roasted fresh figs, and other classic entrées, ChouChou maintains a wine list that consists mainly of French producers, but also includes bottles from the United States.
The restaurant is super cozy — perfect for a
first date or for a great birthday dinner.
We highly recommend brunch at Chou Chou, especailly for their homemade chocolate croissants.
The main courses were even better, and the chocolate pear tart that finished things off was truly swoon worthy.
