This is interesting: Apparently Chez Maman is going to become the Pasta Pomodoro of French restaurants. The affordable bistro is opening three new locations across San Francisco. I've only eaten once at the original location (in Potrero Hill) but remember liking it a lot. The guys who worked there seemed right off the boat from France [it's more likely they flew here -ed.].
The new locations are in Bernal Heights, Cow Hollow and the Mission. But if it's now officially a chain, that means certain people I know are no longer allowed to eat there!
