Left Bank Larkspur's signature French brasserie inspired menu is prepared by Chef Grant Schley. A 42 year old native of San Francisco and a California Culinary Academy graduate, Schley was most recently at Neiman Marcus’ esteemed The Rotunda. Prior experience also includes working as a butcher for Bryan’s Meats (subsequently taught butchery at the CCA), plus stints at Chaya Brasserie (with Chef Shigefumi Tachibe), the Chalet Restaurant Group (Beach, Park and Lake), Betelnut (under SF Chronicle three-star Chef Alexander Ong) and the Chow family of restaurants.
Extraordinary libations remain a Left Bank hallmark and the Larkspur location’s full bar offers classic and contemporary cocktails, the largest pastis selection in California, after dinner drinks and a Wine Spectator award winning list of premium and affordable French and California wines. General Manager Frank Caiazzo ensures that the service at Left Bank Larkspur is seamless. Also working at the restaurant is Private Dining Manager Nora Rahe.
