I Want Chez Panisse to Be the Best Restaurant in California
By Katherine Spiers
I love California. I identify as Californian. I’m a filthy hippie and a bright-eyed striver. I was born in San Francisco. I’m familiar with every bit of Chez Panisse lore and will shout at anyone who doesn’t get how innovative it was when it opened. I am a big fan of everyone I know who worked there. Its importance to California culture can’t be overstated.
