About Bistro Central Parc
After graduating from the Culinary Institute of Strasbourg, Jacques Manuera began his culinary experience at La Reserve in Beaulieu where he became a saucier before moving on to the Savoy Grill  in London. In 1991, Manuera opened his first restaurant, Baker Street Bistro in San Francisco, which he owned and operated for 18 years.  His dream of creating a traditional neighborhood restaurant became a reality when he purchased a fire damaged building in the North Panhandle which he completely refurbished and transformed into Bistro Central Parc, a name chosen by neighbors and friends during a BBQ on a Saturday afternoon.

Working with Manuera, to insure that the entirety of Bistro Central Parc dining experience is a good one, is Chef de Cuisine Nicolas Jardin who brings his modern creativity.

So as you stroll through the streets of Nopa near the panhandle, come and enjoy dinner in a true neighborhood restaurant which will remind you of New York and Paris neighborhood style bistros.
