AB4Me came through with another great recommendation, Ozumo. They were very pleasant and accommodating (improvement!) but their prix fixe menu ranged from $75- $95 per person before
taxes and gratuity
I found an alternate place to eat that's a mere 1/2 mile from Gladstone- an easy drive or simple walk (for those of use using BART.) It's a farm to table restaurant called STEM Kitchen & Garden. It offers a casual yet elegant atmosphere featuring an expansive outdoor patio, garden, bocce ball, fire pits, and sweeping views of San Francisco Bay. The menu is inspired by Californian-Mediterranean cuisine.http://www.stemkitchensf.com
We could easily find something more reasonably priced on the menu to eat there. Shall I try to make a reservation for us?
I really like the idea of walking over instead of using BART. Bocce and fire pits help. Keep in mind, I've never been there, but reviews look amazing. It looks like a great place to unwind and socialize.
In other meet-up news, as of today there will be 140 folks coming out to The Buck to meet with us. Of course, only our small group of 17 will be meeting and dining with Dr. Bredesen afterwards. I've passed along your questions today.
A few folks have asked about the identity of the ApoE NewCo CEO at Gladstone. I received this from Dr. Mahley today:
The CEO of our company is Dr. Leon Chen. Leon has now worked with us for a year to set the stage for this endeavor and has absolutely caught the vision, mastered the knowledge and recognized the importance of developing a treatment for apoE4. He has had previous experience in developing a successful company and is skilled in drug discovery and development. Leon has agreed to join with us in hosting your group here at Gladstone.
I've also invited Dr. Krauss to attend dinner at the Mission Heirloom Garden Cafe and the SFO premiere of The Widowmaker
with us. I haven't heard back from him yet. I also forwarded your questions to him.
Please share your thoughts about STEM. Looks good to me.
