New and Venerable Institutions: Belden Place

Plouf, 40 Belden Place.
Belden Place is the left bank of the City's village francais. The two alley streets - Claude Lane is the other - off Bush Street at Kearny are home to the great seafood restaurant Plouf, as well as Cafe Bastille and Cafe Claude. With the rise to prominence of the two lanes, this area is now the epicenter of the San Francisco's July 14 Bastille Day celebrations. Vive la France!
