Modern French Cuisine
At Frances, you won't find the frou-frou fare characteristic of traditional French fine dining. Instead, Frances serves minimalist French dishes with Californian ingredients, courtesy of chef and owner Melissa Perello.
A mainstay on the menu is the applewood-smoked bacon beignets (you'd expect the dish to be on Frances' dessert menu, but the creme fraiche and chives make it light enough as an appetizer).
Santa Barbara Wines
Frances' short but thoughtful wine list features its own house reds and whites. Beverage director Paul blends these unique sips with Marco Capelli from Miraflores Winery in Placerville.
