From the get go our venerable editor, Jackson West, had a vision for SFist to become a cultural force. Key to his plan for cyber domination was forging strong ties with capital C culture. He dreamed of having an SFist post all in French. The first wave of his Francophilia has been accomplished with the recruitment of food writer Cedric Westphal.

Cedric's Gastronomique column is a French man's perspective on eating in San Francisco. Doesn't get more legit than that. Plus Cedric is a member of the Caltrain Bike Car Crew, which as everyone knows, is the coolest public transit posse around.
