Real Quick Congrats: Perbacco Ristorante @ Cochon 555, SF

While I was down in Los Angeles visiting my old haunts, chef Staffan Terje of Perbacco Ristorante walked away with first prize at San Francisco’s Cochon 555 competition. I’ve had some great meals at Perbacco, though I’ve never reviewed the restaurant officially, since I have some personal ties to the kitchen. Two of my ex-Martini House colleagues (and Pancha’s co-conspirators) are sous chefs at Perbacco (Jimmy Serlin and Karl Holl are pictured left to right, behind chef Terje, and also wearing blue aprons). As a matter of fact, I heard about their winning Cochon menu a couple weeks ago, but I didn’t want to compromise any potential element of surprise at competition. Anyhow, I’m glad that it ended up tasting every bit as good as it sounded. Congratulations to everyone on Team Perbacco, and good luck at Aspen!
