Iconic San Francisco Eatery Petit Crenn Announces Farewell Run Ahead of Permanent ClosureSource: Google Street View

If you're looking to sink your teeth into some nostalgic dining, Petit Crenn's returning to the San Francisco culinary scene – but catch it while you can. The Hayes Valley eatery, led by Chef Dominique Crenn, is set to make a temporary return after its pandemic-induced hiatus.

According to SF Eater, Petit Crenn will kick off its limited run in mid-May, giving foodies a few months to relive the magic before shutting its doors for good in September. The return is sweet, but the end is bittersweet – the closure of Petit Crenn is a direct result of its lease coming to an end. However, Crenn isn't hanging up her apron just yet; there are plans to ambitiously continue to expand her restaurant group both in the U.S. and internationally.

Opened back in 2015, Petit Crenn was conceived as a laid-back counterpart to Crenn's Michelin-starred brainchild, Atelier Crenn. "It's an homage to the cooking of my mother and grandmother, really," Crenn said ahead of its opening. Petit Crenn shuttered temporarily in July 2020 and since then, has only teased San Franciscans with sporadic pop-up dining experiences.

Now, those looking to get a final taste of Petit Crenn's Breton-inspired fare will have their chance. Petit Crenn's Instagram post announced tickets for the "Revival of Petit Crenn" going on sale Friday, April 12 at noon. To snag a reservation, you'll have to quickly jump onto their website or click the link in their bio. Chef Dominique Crenn brings back a slice of her childhood and heritage with dishes that echoe the intimate culinary moments of her French upbringing.

Each resurgent dining experience at Petit Crenn is slated to cost patrons $210 per person, with the option of wine or non-alcoholic pairings thrown into the mix. The restaurant will serve Wednesday through Saturday during its summer swansong.
