Ron Siegel at Michael Mina [San Francisco]

Saw this article in SFGate:

I have to say I'm pretty excited! I have always enjoyed The Dining Room at the Ritz and was disappointed when they turned it to the more casual Parallel 37. Parallel 37 had great food, but it just wasn't in the same league as The Dining Room. Maybe chef Siegel got tired of the casual format and wanted to go back to what he did best - multicourse tasting menus.

Can't wait to try it!

      Remember in 2008 he had put together a group to start a place on his own but the deal didn't go through. He probably continued to have some aspirations that he hoped to fulfill outside of the Ritz.
