Hyde Street Bistro Becomes Cocotte, Under Same Owners


The owner of longtime Nob Hill favorite Hyde Street Bistro (1521 Hyde Street) has decided to change things up, moving away from the dressed up French fare the place was known for and re-concepting the place as Cocotte French Rotisserie. As Eater reports, the new menu and name are already in place, and the name actually refers to a shallow baking dish in which a few signature items are cooked and served, including a cassoulet and a squid ink risotto. They’re still doing some other traditional bistro fare, like coq au vin and mussels mariniere, and there’s also now rotisserie chicken on the menu, as well as quail in brioche, and a chicken liver “parfait.” [Eater]
