…and Chef Jonah wasted no time concocting a menu item that exemplifies everything that is fleeting (as in, we sold out with a quickness last night) and wonderful about it:

Dungeness crab salad with persimmon and chervil

    The crab season “FINALLY” began at the end of November because the boats were FINALLY made a slightly less than offensive offer for their product from the powerful buyers. The enthusiasm for the product is great, but you shouldn’t be dismissive of the labor issues involved in bringing the wonderful local seafood to the people.

      Hi David,

      In no way did we intend to sound dismissive. We are acutely aware of the precariousness of the fishing industry & have spent a good deal of time trying to educate ourselves and our customers on the issues: in 2009 we held a Fisheries Forum with many local fisherman to discuss such things.

      We intend to have a dinner this spring revisiting many of these concerns & to talk about the current state of the fishing industry in northern California in regards to the health of stocks, as well as the impact on the livelihoods of local fishermen & women.

      Apologies again if our post in any way sounded dismissive.
