I will be visiting Seattle from Oakland for four nights in April, and I was excited to try Fare Start's Guest Chef Night on April 9. I have to admit I was a bit disappointed to discover that Il Fornaio is the restaurant for that night--I was hoping for something more unique to Seattle, not a chain.
Can anyone tell me anything about Guest Chef Franz Junga (from Il Fornaio)? Is it still worth trying Fare Start? I really respect their mission and I want to support them, but I also want a quality meal. Of course I'll check out the menu when it's posted, but wanted to get some opinions. Thanks.
