Sacrilege!!!

I don't know if anyone else saw in last Sunday's Chronicle magazine the spread about the Clift Hotel, but it appears that the venerable Redwood Room has been remodeled!!!

The horror.

I am a fan of Stark; going to Cafe Costes in Les Halles was an architectural pilgrimage in the mid-80s (no better places to enjoy a croques monsieur in Paris back then.) I do think Phillipe Stark is talented, but as talented as he may be, the Redwood Room should not have been turned into his canvas!

I'm getting a sinking feeling reminescent of the blues after the closing of Ernie's and Trader Vic's.
