I heard through the grapevine that chef Jason Tallent of ~GLOBE~ is leaving the restaurant, and moving to Austin, Texas, with his wife and two-year-old twins. He said it’s just too expensive to raise a family here, and he’d also like to be able to have his own place, which he’s more likely to be able to afford in Austin. His last night is on Sunday January 30th, which will also be his last farmer dinner at the restaurant. And it’s quite a legacy—he’s been there since 1999. Tallent’s replacement has yet to be announced, but it sounds like Joseph Manzare is on the hunt. 290 Pacific Ave. at Battery, 415-391-4132.
