A few weeks ago, Jan and Peter managed to get reservations at [Frances](http://www.frances-sf.com/), which turned out to be one of the best restaurants I've ever been to. I'm told that it is nearly impossible to get reservations, so they must have had a last-minute cancellation! Highly recommended. After I got home, I made a couple more reservations on Open Table. The first slot available was 5 weeks out.
