French Laundry, Chow, and Doctors Agree: Life Takes Huevos

Posted By on Mon, Aug 20, 2007 at 2:07 PM


We can feel arteries deliciously clogging around the news of Chow owner Tony Gulisano's passionate love affair with the incredible, edible egg. We've been warned of course, but our abiding love of greasy spoon diners, Tabasco and breakfast in general has kept the yolks running freely.

And cholesterol watchers, take heart: nature's protein pack may not be as bad as all that. Seems that the egg could be getting "a far worse reputation than it deserves." Note to my doctor: it's the blood cholesterol, stupid.

And apparently Gulisano isn't the only one under the spell. It seems that the humble egg is on a roll (buttered, with cheese and bacon preferably). While the rest of the world has been plopping them on top of everything from pizzas to hamburgers for all eternity, some upscale American eateries are lately stepping into the fray.

Even local food biggie Thomas Keller of The French Laundry has gotten in on the ovum action, with a BLT Fried-Egg-and-Cheese Sandwich recipe in Food & Wine in July. And the nerve of some people, saying The French Laundry is slipping. Sheesh.

  • 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.'"
