I think San Francisco is ready for French cuisine’s return…the guy that may be responsible for turning it around may just be Corey Lee, who will be opening a French brasserie in Hayes Valley.

Corey Lee, formerly of Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star The French Laundry, has been stunning critics and diners…we are eagerly anticipating his second act: Monsieur Benjamin.
– Forbes Travel Guide

Monsieur Benjamin will be offering something that we don’t have a lot of in this town: traditional French bistro dishes with seasonal ingredients, and updated with some modern techniques.
– Tablehopper

Monsieur Benjamin will stay open till 1 a.m., serving the kind of food that a chef rigorously trained in the French system, like Lee, might cook for friends on his night off.
