So for today's post, we are taking you back to the end of October at Chef Roland's birthday celebration at the Presidio Yacht Club where friends and family came to honor him.
For us who live in the Bay Area, we are fortunate to have a number of Michelin-starred dining rooms accessible for us to enjoy. According to Bill Addison of eater.com, "Right now the Bay Area is the most exciting place in America to go wild on fine dining." We have our hardworking chefs and their staff to thank for this distinction. Undoubtedly, our chefs work long, tough hours day in and day out, and all through every holiday to create the next best dish, and to stay attuned to diners' experiences and pleasures. So, it was a special privilege for us to be on the other end of the table. This time, it was our chefs partying while we did our part at the photo booth.
With the number of chefs present that night, I did wonder how many kitchens in the Bay Area were missing them. But with the combination of a Mardi Gras themed party, great food, great company, fun at the photo booth, and the awesome view of the Golden Gate Bridge- they were having the time of their lives and, they deserved it!
