Chez Panisse

    Newer Older

    Finally - after many weeks of trying to get a reservation, I succeeded in getting one for our 2-month wedding anniversary. Sharing dinner with the Bearded One was wonderful in every way; Alice Waters is one of my culinary heroes and the meal was delicious, and there isn't anyone else I'd rather be eating with at this special place - it was a two-fold celebration.

      nice! i want to try and get a reservation when my parents come to town. how far in advance did you get the reservation?

      You can only reserve up to a month in advance (to the day); I was basically just checking Open Table obsessively for weeks until an opening miraculously opened up (on the most fortuitous day, too!)

      you know chez panisse is essentially why i ended up moving to SF,right? my buddy & roommate (at the time) Nate,was moving here with aspirations of working there.he somehow eventually convinced me to come with him....that was seven years ago,hes now the sous chef at zuni,but is in the process of becoming a firefighter....go figure.

      Wow - that's cool! I never knew that story. Firefighter / chef - there's a certain synchronicity there...both occupations need fire!
