I left the great emerald valley for the valley of the sun to extend me culinary career. Getting out of my comfort zone I realized how starved eugene is for good restaurants. I have been all over Phoenix and worked with some amazing chefs in the valley to sharpen my skills and become familiar with running a credible establishment. Remembering how many farmers markets and fresh seafood access eugene has at very good prices, how can you not have competitive market of good restaurants? There are maybe one or two places (Marche' and Cafe' Zenon) but those are so incredibly sub-par compared to where I have been and where I worked out here. Guess I have been spoiled....last time I came home I made it a point to go on a eugene tasting and found myself very dissappointed. Adam's place was the most impressive but the service was sad....anyways, what are the people of eugene looking for?
