"I love the way dishes evolve over a short period of time. This dish went from being good to great over the last few weeks. Sheep’s milk triangoli, lemon glaze, walnut, bergamot mint, avocado blossom honey, and bee pollen. This Bay Area regional Italian cuisine at its best. #CheFicoStyle #RusticFinesse 📷= @carbqueenbayarea"

"Saturday night @mdbrewer8 got to sit down in our restaurant and have dinner. This is the second time that we have done this over the 6 weeks that we have been open. The first time my entire team received an email about 3 pages long on areas that we could improve. This Saturday I left the table feeling overwhelmingly proud of what we have accomplished so far. My biggest source of pride came from the fact that I had not cooked one single thing and I could not find any criticism with anything we ate. That’s not to say that nobody else can. It’s to say that our team is cooking food to the exact specifications that we have all agreed that we want. I want to say thank you to the entire tram at @chefico for working so hard to get to this point. The service is warm and hospitable. The wine service is elegant. The cocktails are delicious. I am proud. Cheers to pushing goal line further. #CheFicoStylePizza"
