Three-Star Applause for Christopher Kostow

I wanted to take a minute and note the significant accomplishment of Christopher Kostow, chef at The Restaurant at Meadowood in St. Helena which just received three stars from the prestigious Michelin Guide and is only the second restaurant in California to hold this honor (the first was Thomas Keller's celebrated dining room, The French Laundry).

Christopher worked for me from around 2002-2004 at George's before taking off for France to expand his experience. His passion, work ethic and creativity are inspiring. If you find yourself in the Napa region I'd encourage you to check out The Restaurant at Meadowood.

A good read on Christopher:
