Chicago star chef ~Grant Achatz~ was in town for the holidays, and made quite a few stops. A tipster let us know he had a late-night dinner at Range followed by drinks at Third Rail, and according to his Twitter feed, he had the Feast of the Seven Fishes at A16 on Christmas Eve, Christmas at Yank Sing, and a meal at State Bird Provisions he deemed “worth the hype.”
…Because the Naked Chef himself paid San Francisco a visit this week. According to some Facebook posts, ~Jamie Oliver~ was spotted at The Cavalier (with Tyler Florence), and some stalking of his Instagram feed reveals he paid a visit to Tosca Cafe for a Negroni, as well. He was in town working with Alice Waters’ Edible Schoolyard, and Berkeleyside Nosh has lots of details on their collaboration, along with Bay Area Bites. Jamie and Alice also posed for an adorable picture together that we found on his Facebook page.
