Chez Panisse substituion question

GregJ | Oct 20, 2004 12:39 PM

Spouse and I will find ourselves in San Francisco (visiting from DC) the weekend of November 20th. Spouse has kindly consented to attend the Big Game on the 20th (my first since graduating from Cal in 1972!). Condition is that we have dinner at Chez Panisse (which will be our first time there). (Not that I needed much arm twisting.) Unfortunately, spouse is seriously allergic to lamb. If that turns out to be the entree on offer that day, are we out of luck? I assume they would substitute a vegetable plate or some such. On the other hand, when I made my reservation they made a point of saying the week's menu is posted on their web site in advance. I suppose I could (and probably should) call back and ask, but I'm sure I'm not the first one to ask this question. (I did a quick search in the archives but couldn't locate this precise topic.) Thanks!
