While accidentally in San Francisco due to flight delays...we decided to see what we could see and hopped on the BART to go downtown to find a place to eat. The Aquitaine's brightly colored awning and outdoor seating caught our eye so we checked the menu and went inside. Loved the French farmhouse décor, primary colors and tinned ceiling. Nice wine selection by the glass and by the bottle. The calamari with fried parsley was very good and had a unique flavor which the server identified as the fried parsley. Pork rillettes with apple salad and sliced toast was almost more of a small plate size but delicious. The fries, served in a wooden shoe (a large one) were terrific and no ketchup was offered...the sauce that was served with them was perfect. Other menu selections looked equally interesting. The serving shoes represent the Aquitaine region of France and the writing on them roughly translates as 'a glass of wine a day keeps the doctor away' as per our server. Servers were pleasant and knowledge. If ever in San Francisco again, I'd have to have another shoe of pommes frites!
