Fast Food Francais (“F3”)
Fast Food Francais, which has fostered the local nickname “F3”, opened in mid-February, 2013, just a few days after the last service under the prior restaurant in the building, Plate Shop. The owners are the same team behind the highly successful Le Garage here in Sausalito (and L’Appart in San Anselmo), and we think they deserve some kind of medal (with oak clusters for Common Sense) for making the transition in so little time and with minimal “we must re-design everything” ego.
We love the concept here: traditional American comfort food with French-California flavors and sauces, with an emphasis on local ingredients and keeping things light. This is a favorite meeting spot for us, and the service is always warm and friendly. They rotate the menu to focus on what’s in season and to keep things fresh, but we sure wish they didn’t stop offering the Blue Cheese Burger, which was our favorite!
Something else that people should know about Fast Food Francais? Glad we don’t have a place in town called Paltry Plates Provencal or Slow Service de Sedan? Disagree with any of our suggestions? Please let us know!
