A modern bistro with seasonal eats, Bar Frances is a place to gather day or night for a wine-paired meal, or drinks and small plates. Chef Mimi Assad, formerly of Gautreau’s and Angeline, serves lunch, dinner and brunch featuring a French, Lebanese and Southern influenced menu, driven by seasonal choices and locally farmed ingredients, with dishes such as blistered shishito peppers, baby lettuce and frisée salad, duck leg confit, and saffron gulf shrimp and fish stew.
Featuring a large selection of natural wines and a daily happy hour, the bar and cocktail program by Craig Seaman is progressive yet classic. Inquire about the monthly wine club and special tastings, with which the owners endeavor to educate their patrons about wine.
