The Chinese chefs were certainly among the earliest and most important influences on the cooking of San Fransisco, but so were the French. The French opened the first really good restaurants that catered to the rising class of newly wealthy. They set the tone for fine dining in the town. A restaurant that combines the French and Chinese influences is Tommy Toy's. The dining room feels like a classic French restaurant, but it's actually patterned after the reading room of the Dowager Empress of China. The kitchen is definitely Asian, but the menu reflects both traditions.
