Chez Panisse Fire

Didn't see a thread started. There was a fire at Chez Panisse this morning. No word on how long the restaurant will be closed.

  1. Sad news. I had reservation for the downstairs April 1 too.

    1. "Ms. Waters hopes to open the cafe with the week ... 'the downstairs — I don’t know how we could really make it right for quite some time.'"

        The best thing about downstairs was the room! Wow!

      2. When asked about the source of the fire, officials said simply "Local and sustainable".

        Love the place, had my first morels there, hope they get back open soon.

          1. Had reservations for tonight for a special occasion and I was looking forward to it for weeks. Not sure where to go now. Hope they'll be up and running again in not too long.
