Two-Michelin Star Manresa Suffers From Two-Alarm Fire

Posted By on Mon, Jul 7, 2014 at 11:30 AM

Renowned two-Michelin star restaurant, Manresa, was ablaze at 3:58 a.m., resulting in a two-alarm fire in Los Gatos, KCBS reports.

The fire was contained by 6 a.m. by 35 firefighters. While only one firefighter was sent to the hospital due to a "minor chest injury," no restaurant employees were injured. The restaurant has been closed for a "deep clean" since July 3.

The Chronicle reports that the restaurant suffered "heavy damage."

The cause of the fire is still under investigation, but KCBS reports that a gas meter could be involved and that a Cupertino hazmat crew assisted in containing the fire while PG&E shut down the gas line.

David Kinch, chef and owner of Manresa, is said to be currently flying to the site from New York.

Update: The restaurant has suffered about $300,000 in damage, according to San Jose Mercury News. Battalion Chief of the Santa Clara County firefighters also says that smoke was a huge player in the damage, so napkins, carpeting, and linens will need to be replaced. Mercury also reports that the restaurant will probably be closed for several months.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
