Bistro 1689 is a nice, French-Californian place that serves things like yummy lamb chops and roast duck breast with roasted figs and spinach, says susancinsf. Entrees are in the $20 range. But the stand-out dish is one of the desserts–perfectly fried, hot fritters that taste deeply of apple, served with a “milkshake” in a bowl for dipping. It’s crunchy, sweet, creamy, and delicious. The restaurant is easy to get into, empty and quiet on a weekday, and just the apple fritters make it worth a visit.
