Before he became entrenched in San Francisco's dining scene, Gascon chef Laurent Manrique made his name in New York at Peacock Alley and Gertrude's so Millesime, his new "seafood brasserie" at the Carlton Hotel, opening next week, represents a homecoming of sorts. There's a distinctive French slant to the menu, which features oysters with sausages "Bordeaux-style," pike quenelles "Jean-Louis Dumonetstyle," and lobster "pot au feu," plus a full complement of raw-bar items, mussels, and grilled fish with mix-and-match sauces.
