Cliff Cafe Gets The Sack
Word on the street has Hotel Belmont's Cliff Cafe shuttering its doors for a couple of months while Bolsa partners Chris Zielke and Christopher Jeffers renovate the space.
Their plan? Turn Cliff Cafe (or whatever they end up calling it) into a semi-upscale barbecue joint, adhering loosely to Bolsa's local and seasonal mantra. To run the kitchen and help with the restaurant's development, Zielke and Jeffers have teamed up with Tim Byres, until very recently the executive chef for Stephan Pyles.
Byres' CV includes stints at The Mansion (like everyone else, it seems) and his own acclaimed--but lightly attended--Standard.
Thus far the story goes.
