In 2002, Chef Gerald Hirigoyen and his wife Cameron brought authentic flavors to downtown San Francisco CA with the opening of Piperade. Its owners describe the restaurant as “West Coast Basque Cuisine,” bringing together these two cultures by incorporating fresh local ingredients into French, Spanish, and Basque dishes. Named after the classic Basque stew of sizzling peppers, tomatoes, and garlic topped with slices of ham and a poached egg, Piperade serves flavorful recipes in a cozy ambiance that is perfect for date nights, business meetings, or outings with family and friends.
