Pear Street Bistro - Pinole [moved from San Francisco Bay Area board]

Has anyone else been following the machinations going on with this place?

Matier & Ross reported that the city council member who greased the skids for a $450000 loan has resigned. Turns out he's also the guy that gave it a glowing review on "Check Please". All this is unseemly enough but the loan is not being paid back. Apparently the council member has also just joined the army at the ripe old age of 38, anybody know the extradition rules from Iraq?

Should "Check Please" be running a disclaimer when they rerun the ep?

    Yes. And they should indicate the original air date of any re-runs, since there could be chef changes, etc.

    Interesting story for what was known as the best restaurant in Pinole.
