Where I Go Out

At My Venues

The omelette
$$$, French, Reservations, Breakfast, Hayes Valley
"You’ve made it all this way. The omelette is optional. But, again, you’ve made it all this way already... Japanese style rolled omelette, savory with dashi; on top of buerre monte, underneath caviar, herbs and flowers."
Fizz featuring Ketel One
$$$, French, Reservations, Breakfast, Hayes Valley
"What an honor to be a part of last night's Women of Food Series with @dominiquecrenn, @chefeinat & @oakes_nancy presented by @resy & @ketelone_us. Big thanks to @ketelone_us for bringing me in to create the cocktails for the night like the Fizz featuring Ketel One with a Sauternes, Oolong tea, & grapefruit soda. And much love to @suzuvroom for bartending with me. What a night! 💯 🔥 💜 #resyxwomenoffood #ketelone #petitcrenn #boulevard #balaboosta #taïm #werise #ilovemyjob #justoverheremakingsoda #vodka #sauternes #oolongtea #grapefruit #dorothyjaneglassware #bonvoyagebar"
Drip Coffee
$$, Wine Bar, Cow Hollow
"@trishrothgeb and I had the pleasure of this wonderful experience at @BarCrenn. Sorry, I’m not gonna list out the dishes, but just know everything was absolutely incredible. Normally we don’t have coffee after dinner, but when you’re chatting with @dominiquecrenn and she wants you to try the coffee service, you just do... and the coffee was really lovely! Thanks Dominique for creating such an amazing experience!"
