We keep our boat at Pier 39 in San Francisco. Our favorite restaurant on the Pier is The Eagle Cafe. We have become good friends with the managing partner. She does everything FRESH and to the highest standard. She believes freezers should be used for ice cream! (They make a great milk shake!).

I had to laugh during our recent visit when she was telling Sandy and I about a chain restaurant on the Pier that needed to borrow some product until their delivery arrived. The problem was that they had no idea what to do with a fresh whole fish. They were used to pre-portioned frozen fish in a bag and the mind blower  was that they were stumped by fresh eggs, still in their shell. Egg beaters in a bag was their norm. I guess scissors are the chain restaurants trade tool, replacing chef’s knives. Seems broken to me!
