thanks for your comments on my blog.
I am glad to have discovered it and read the whole thing from start to finish, pretty much. Of course I am trying to work out the name of your restaurant, which I guess is Mendocino? Good thoughts - thank you for sharing with the world. It's great to see such a fresh voice out there from inside of the kitchen.
PS my ex roomate from New orleans & whose mother owns a restaurant there, lives right next door to Hard Knox, but she really detests it. I've asked her take me there to guide me through southern cuisine, but she won't because she can't bear it. I've had gumbo and remoulade from her mum and it's always been delicious.
I wondered if you have been to Hayes Street Grill. It's honestly one of the worst eating experiences I've had in SF, which is why I am nervous of trusting Utterman. It's the only place I have ever actually refused to pay for a dish.
Have a great weekend, I'll be back to check on you sometime -


Thanks Sam.

I don't put the name of my restaurant here because I'm trying to remain anonymous (or at least be able to speak my mind without repercussions of lost customers, hard feelings among a small professional community etc.)

Since however, my blog is receiving far more hits than the restaurant's actual website, perhaps I should just start speaking my mind anyway.

We'll see what the future holds.

Never been to the Hayes Street Grill, been on the list forever, but never made it there. Hard Knox is NOT a good representation of Southern cooking, but it was WAY better than the Blue Jay on Divisadero. I am however, a sucker for black-eyed peas, collards and corn bread so I can forgive a lot just to have those on the plate.

Thanks for reading.
