Ducked in to Chow on Church yesterday with a friend(we started the day at Tartine, the breakfast pastry isn't their strongest point- YET - the lemon cream tart IS!And the bread is divine.)Enjoyed lunch at Chow very much,fresh ingredients, simply done and I love the prices.

As we get up to leave, she says hi to a man sitting behind us - turns out he is one of the owners!!!! They've known each other for years. I asked her at what point was she going to reveal this to me!?!?!? haha Then Laurence Jossel(executive chef) came by and we had a lovely chat with him, a really, really nice man. It sounds as if they're planning on opening up a restaurant in the East Bay- east of the Caldecott that is! We all had a terrific 'foodie'chat, they're very aware of us Chowhounders and they both instructed us to go back to Tartine and buy the bread. We did! :-)
