  3. we had dinner at soba ichi (2311a magnolia (grand)) in oakland last night. if you had been to honmura an when it was open in nyc, they are on par with the quality of soba that was made there. the restaurant is open from thursday to sunday, no reservations are accepted and it’s first come-first served. they’re worth your time if you’re ever in the area. 2018 sf chronicle review eater sf highlight
  4. doubtful for instance, when reichl wanted to rate le cirque 2 stars for refusing to attend to her when she was disguised and 4 stars when she went as herself, management forced her to make a decision and revise her rating. that suggests that decisions involving the star rating are subject to individuals above pete’s pay grade.
