We have had a love affair with this fabulous Alice Waters restaurant ever since we lived in San Francisco in the 1970's so we were delighted that we were able to dine there again on Tuesday October 30th. We were a party of four in the downstairs seating area where everyone has the prix fixe menu du jour. I am not a lamb fan but cod and lamb were both on the menu that evening and both dishes were excellent. I may have to rethink my aversion to lamb! The service was first-class and we had a chance to sample the rose wine that is Alice Waters' favorite. Our kitchen in Princeton is decorated with Chez Panisse posters and a special memory of one meal at Chez Panisse is that one time our newborn daughter slept through the evening in a dumb-waiter while we enjoyed a going away meal in 1976. Don't know if the dumb-waiter still exists but the high quality cuisine sure does!
