Tomorrow night, I’ll be dining at another Beard-award winner’s table: Thomas Keller took the award for best restauranteur, and I’ll be visiting Bouchon for dinner.
I’ll have a whirlwind trip to California, but I’ll be sure to shoehorn in a lot of good eating. I’ll be making my pilgrimage to the amazing Austrian pastry café, Konditorei (they did my wedding cake… can you believe I used to live in a house within walking distance of this place, and WILLINGLY sold it? What an IDIOT!)… also the Davis Farmers Market, where I worked for a few years as assistant market manager (about 14 years ago, but the manager Randii is still going strong!), and possibly Graffiti in Petaluma.
I also want to meet with some folks for late-evening-snacks and/or dessert in the Oakland airport area on Monday night. Anyone got any suggestions/wanna join us?
Off we go!
