Tana Butler

Amy, I don't know you, but your sweet face and your abundant joy in your life's work make me want to love you.

I haven't blogged in so long, but you make me want to get back into the saddle.

I am so very happy for you—to have observed your journey and to see the heavenly place which you've earened with your talent and goodness.

Ms. Glaze

Tana! You are one of my favorite bloggers. Really, you write from the heart, care for our land, our farmers, our community, and your photographs are stunning.

I would love to meet you in person when I get back to the Bay Area and when the pre-opening jitters wear off. And, I would love to get in touch with some of these farmers you've been showcasing throughout the years.

I have not lived in CA for six years now and I'm out of touch with who's who. But you know I will do anything I can to support local farmers...

Much love and hope to connect soon!



My God Ms Glaze! Everthing looks gorgeous! John

Ms. Glaze

Just an FYI we have not updated the website yet to reflect the change in menu and new business hours. So stay tuned...

Mad William

Congrats Amy! That's fantastic. I can't wait to visit.

House Hunting in Paris

Congrats, all your work, sacrifice, and patience has paid off! If I ever make it out to SF I will be sure to try out your new place. Good luck.


This brought a big smile to my face. I'm living in Paris, originally from SF, and am definitely coming in on our next trip back home. I admire your commitment and stamina, and have happily accompanied you through your adventures, successes and bounce backs. A thousand congrats on this next chapter.

Iam so very happy for you—to have observed your journey and to see the heavenly place which you've earened with your talent and goodness....


Really wonderful to hear that you have this great opportunity. You will succeed, I can tell.

Lydia (The Perfect Pantry)

How exciting! Sometimes the universe just tells you what it wants you to do, and you have to be smart enough to go along with it. Can't wait to stop in next time I'm in SF.

Expat Stu

I'll be in too. Bonne chance!


Woo hoo! And that's a gorgeous place. Congrats!


Wow wowow! This is great news. You have your own place after Paris, NY, a foodies-must-read blog and even fun cooking videos. I would have thought a book would come first ('cause you can certainly write), but this is really, really cool. Congrats!


Welcome back to San Francisco!


Amy Kudos.. I have been following your journey for a few years now. It is only natural for you to land in SF.
Had worked kitchens in the 70s.....Loved it but very hostile towards women, especially one with a child. So turned to catering.
Bravo for you,
Will visit later this spring.


oMg Amy.
All this time I have followed your blog and I will actually be able to meet you and taste your food. I live in Marin~! yea, congrats! you deserve it.
I can only guess what you have left out of your blogs, but the burns and the humiliation and endless hours are about to pay off for you big time.
Corte Madera


Well, wow!! This is exciting news. I come to SF at least once or twice every year, so I'll look forward to visiting (and meeting you in person at last!)


Congratulations Amy, this is fantastic! I've been following your blog since you were in Paris and loving all of your adventures. I live in San Jose, so I will definitely be by to check out your restaurant.


Hi Amy - Congratulations! I've been following you and your adventures for awhile, and am so glad things have worked out for you! I live in SF as well, and just made a reservation for March! Can't wait!


Congratulations, Amy! That is fantastic news, and now that we're back in the Bay Area, we'll definitely be in to taste all of this wonderful cooking that I've been reading about for years.

Angel Junio

CONGRATULATIONS! Let me know when I'll def. stop by :)


I h8 presearing, but its a definite necessity for parties :-(.

I'm super excited for you. The bay area is lucky to be getting you! I hope you still get chances to give your blog some content!


Wow, Wow, Wow! Félicitations! Keep us posted on how it goes, please!


Congratulations Amy! You deserve this opportunity. Enjoy, its going to be a sensation!


Congratulations!!! It's great that you enjoyed your time cooking the private dinners and that you found your inspiration again (so quickly!).
I'm sure this will be a success!


What an adventure this is going to be! Congratulations!!!


Well, very late to the comments line, but congratulations! This is excellent news that you're opening up your new place and I can't wait to see your updated menu. Now to see about when to get those reservations.

By the way, you made me laugh with the Texan doctors. 10 years worth of investigator meetings, and I've never seen anyone take the vegetarian option.

Mary Ann

Oh, I'm SOOOoooo happy for you. I've enjoyed living through your food experiences for years and NOW I'll get a real chance to taste your cooking for myself. What a delightful treat. I live in Milwaukee BUT have the best reason ever to visit SF. Wishing you the success you deserve and have worked so hard for and I'm hungry for more of your adventures. Good Luck!


Just one word: wow!


Congratulations Amy! I can't believe you're going to be running your own kitchen. My, how you;ve grown. Sniff! I'm positive you'll do amazing. Can't wait to dine there (and get totally hooked up, of course).

We miss you in the kitchen. I do, at least. And guess what?! Chris moved me to A.M Hot Apps. I was on Veg only for a month! I have a feeling this has something to do with you. Anyway, take care. and Keep blogging, of course.

Ms. Glaze

Funnylifian – you'll be great on Morning Hot Apps. Be organized and make a system and time yourself so you know if you're ahead or behind. Nico will make sure you're set up and I'm sure he will share his routine. Take the bull by the horns...and think of those weekends you'll have off! Oh, and make some Keralan fish curry and fish fry for family meal. That will be a big hit!

Ms. Glaze

Thanks everyone for the support! I feel like I'm on a roller coaster right now. One day the sun is shining and the next I want stick my head in the sand. I have literally two weeks to get this place up and running and move back to San Francisco. Yikes!

That being said, I'd rather be the crazy whirlwind that I am right now than a bored home alone one.

Once again, thank you, and I hope you will stop by some time in the future and pop your head in the kitchen and say 'hi'.

Sherry Page

Amy, so nice to hear that you are back in town! And opening up a new restaurant, too! Look forward to seeing you again soon!


I ate at Le Club once a number of years ago. Beautiful place and I had a great meal. This is terrific. You're gonna do great. Congrats and good luck!

Bistro LightCatcher/Caris

If you need a stagier (free help!), I'm there. Many congrats - the food gods are watching out for you. Le Club and your line looks fantastique! Incroyable!

I'm in need of a custom made woman's chef coat - can you recommend the SF maker you've mentioned? Contact info?



This is great news!!! Congratulations and I know you'll do well. You've got the talent, love for your craft and loads of experience to make this place into a gem. My next visit to SF will be the time for a great meal!


Best wishes to you in your exciting new venture! Yours is the first food blog I ever read, still read and enjoy. I hope you'll find the time to keep writing too.

Bonne chance!


Congratulations! Very excited for you, can't wait to get to San Fran and eat at Le Club.

And those statler chickens look great!


Congratulations and welcome back to San Francisco! We've been meaning to go to Le Club with friends, and now we certainly will!






Congratulations! Kudos to your hard work and persistance.

It's a pleasure following your kitchen adventures, and I anticipate hearing more about this new one. Hope you enjoy the roller coaster while riding!


"trust no one"

Words to live by ;^)

San Francisco eaters are about to get lucky.


"what a long strange trip this has been...." Ok not strange, exciting, rollercoastery, and very absorbing for those of us vicariously following along. I agree with some one earlier about the book, but I'm sure that will come and do hope you keep us on the ride with you. You will knock em out no doubt. In boca al lupo!" which is an an Italian saying for good luck but along the lines of "break a leg".....ciao


Years ago my son and I went from the children's book by Alice Waters: Fanny At Chez Panisse to reading your blog. Now you have a restaurant, too, we'll certainly drive in from West Marin to come and dine!
Congratulations and welcome back to the Bay Area!



Need any pastry help? I can intern (free!)


Very happy for you Amy. You are on your way girl. Don't look back.
It's all in front of you now. They have any brains ...at all they give you a piece of the place. Don't see how else they expect to keep your type of talent around... If it hasn't happened it will.


I don't usually comment even though I love your blog, but this post is so exciting(!!) that I have to.
I'm cheering you on and will definitely be visiting Le Club in the near future. You do all these things I wish I could do, and it's great to see you achieve so much. Good luck with everything!

Alessio Fangano

Amy I cant believe it! I leave you for a couple of months and you open your own restaurant. Congratulations my friend! It will surely be on my list the day I will pop by SF. BTW pop by my blog for your award http://recipetaster.blogspot.com/2010/02/its-chickpea-affair.html

Congratulations again! :-)
