Vis-à-vis a post on Facebook from chef James Ormsby, I learned Thomas Keller came in to Saison to dine last week. Chef Joshua Skenes said the kitchen was super excited to have him in: “As young cooks, we were all inspired so much by his book—we were raised on it.”

Even God Gets Denied as a Walk-In

According to a tweet, it seems Sir Thomas Keller tried to walk in for dinner at Frances as a party of three; and much to the chagrin of the restaurant, had to be declined a table. Yup, busy busy.

TK and his party ended up dining at Bar Tartine instead, thanks to a glowing reco (and phone call) from Paul Einbund at Frances.

According to a tweet, Thomas Keller was in the house at RN74.
