Anchored in the South of France, the restaurant comes from culinary visionary Laurent Halasz, a Scottsdale resident that is behind the successful restaurant Fig and Olive in LA, New York, and Washington D.C. FRANCINE, named after Laurent’s mother, artistically intertwines a beautiful setting with cuisine inspired by the South of France.

Whether it is brunch on the weekends, lunch any day of the week, or an intimate dinner, FRANCINE’S patio effortlessly blends fine-dining in a relaxing and beautiful outdoor setting.

We know this outdoor patio comes at a good time and will be the birthplace of many new memories for guests at FRANCINE.
