Congratulations to our neighbors at All Spice in San Mateo, recently mentioned by Michelin director Michael Ellis in a Michelin Guide interview about “restaurants who make the cut in 2013”! We love your style and most importantly your food!

In March, 2011 SF Chronicle’s Michael Bauer writes, “Good cooking is inspiring. I admire a chef who brings his heritage into the kitchen and cooks with passion; it’s a statement about where he’s been and what he is today. I feel that connection with Mourad Lahlou, who is using his Moroccan roots at Aziza; and Gerald Hirigoyen, who offers Basque interpretations at Piperade.

When it comes to Indian cuisine, Sachin Chopra is also following his own path. This chef has worked at high-end restaurants on the Peninsula and in the South Bay, including Amber India, Mantra and Sakoon. Now, he’s ventured out, with his wife, Shoshana Wolff, to open All Spice in a Victorian house in San Mateo. It’s a familiar spot to anyone who knows the area because it was the former home of the Dining Room and, more recently, Dollie Marie’s.”  Read the full article

And it appears our local fine dining scene continues to thrive with Michael Ellis continuing the conversation into 2013- “We were very happy to find All Spice – we’re trying to look outside, a bit off the beaten path, trying to find people that are doing some unique, special things, that might not necessarily be on anyone’s radar.”
