* * ABOUT our GUEST CHEFS * *


Ian is the sous-chef at Bar Tartine and has also worked at Zuni Café, Yoshi’s, Pizzeria Delfina, Nopa and many more. He enjoys reading cookbooks and unicorn porn.


Carlo is the chef of Piccino--the Dogpatch café hailed by the Examiner as executing San Francisco’s iconic meal…with conviction” and by the Chronicle as serving Perfection in the form of pepperoni pizza.


Amy Kurtz recently moved to San Francisco from Chicago, where she was a pastry cook at Charlie Trotter's. She is almost as excited as we are for Thursday's sneak preview of her desserts.


* * NOTES * *


Cash only.


We will be closed for the holidays and reopen in 2009. See you then.


We found a few items (clothing and accessories) at the restaurant after the last two Thursdays—if you lost something, let us know by email or in person this Thursday.
