We celebrated our recent launch with an industry party in January attended by friends and colleagues from the local Bay Area culinary community. Chefs, restaurateurs, food writers, suppliers and Gouge Eye farmers came together and mingled over samplings of Dominique’s dishes including a Lightly poached oyster with sea urchin and apple (pictured below) and her Potato cooked in its own soil with comte cheese and smoked ham hock broth.
We were delighted to observe people’s initial reaction when they entered our newly designed space for the very first time. After all, we’ve been witnessing the step-by-step transformation for the last nine months, so it was like introducing a new baby.
It’s hard to believe Atelier Crenn has already been open for an entire month, but we know this is just the beginning. If or when you are in the San Francisco area, we look forward to sharing Atelier Crenn with you in person.
