A few weeks ago while searching for a different cuisine, Le Chale Basque popped up. I saved it off for future reference if eating in San Rafael.
So today, on the NAF board thread about unusual/unique service Ranger tells the tale of this Basque restaurant that he makes a yearly pilgrimage to. Sounds wonderful.
If you are reading, any more info Ranger? And why didn't you let us locals in on this?
There were only two brief Chowhound mentions I could find, one in 2000 and another in 2002. And those people didn't eat there.
Elsewhere on the web it gets high marks for its authenticty, warm service and delicious food.
