@turkfontaine aw thanks for the kind words! The leadership thing was a little weird, and up for discussion another time maybe. That boss definitely was trying to push me to be something I was not. Maybe I am, but perhaps not the kind of leader he wanted. One day I hope to figure that part out!


I'm glad to be your FB friend as well!

@RickNakama Thanks Rick! I finally changed it up at many people's request — it's easier to view on the phone, yeah? Easier overall, but definitely easier to view on the phone.

@crysmy I can't believe you haven't been here yet. Perhaps you need to take that up with @Parkrat


As for the wines: I gotta be honest, we didn't get the printed secret menu until we left, so I didn't order the recommended pairing and so do not know the prices. I believe the glasses range from about $10-15, though.

@ParkRat you should ask @EdMorita what he does with all the crusts he cuts off. I saw him wrap them up in cellphane, but I don't know where he took them. Crust graveyard? Your house? No one knows.

1 week, 3 days ago on Baking bread with Berkley

Reply

@Annoddah_Dave I'm not sure about the servers, but yes to the kitchen. Since the restaurant was closed for a few months while they reset, the staff had to seek employment elsewhere. Not many people can just hang around for months!


As for the difference....I'm not being diplomatic, but the difference is apples and oranges. Both are talented chefs with different styles. I think they brought Jonathan in because his style and execution is in the vein of what the restaurant produces. He was trained at the French Laundry, after all!
