As I was perusing the San Francisco Chronicle's website, whose lovely visages should appear, but our own Sixy Beast and Pim! Congrats on the recognition and on diligently championing the cause of Chowhounds all over the world. I for one am quite please your respective travels have brought you to our little corner of the culinary world.
Along those lines, I'd like to query as to your respective thoughts on En Suite. I recall reading Sam and Fred's initial experience which put me off of trying it for several months. Now once again, since my business partner lives quite close, I found myself walking by and peering in through the windows. With the impending closure of Bizou, is this remaining bistro truly beyond help? Not that I am opposed to making the trek to Chapeau! or Jeanty at Jack's for my bistro fix, but it's just so darn tempting to try En Suite. What's the real deal? Sam, have you been back? Pim, have you given this a whirl? Dining minds would like to know :)
P.S. Lovely pix of both Sam and Pim accompany the article on line (as if the mere mention of their names were not enough) ;)
