      It started it all
      Chez panisse started the whole idea of "california cuisine" with an emphasis on local produce and meats and fresh, inventive meals. I've only ever been here for lunch (twice), but each time I had an amazing meal. One negative: I found the menu to be intimidating, nothing sounded "normal" and was afraid to be adventurous - but if you get past that and just pick something, you will enjoy it immensely. But for the record, I just couldn't bring myself to order the bone marrow.
