Lack of names with the intention to get a coveted desk in a preferred restaurant will not be unusual. However to drop a well-known chef’s well-known restaurant to get a desk … for an much more well-known musician? It is a bit weird. However that’s precisely what occurred within the Japantown restaurant Nari run by chef and proprietor Pim Techamuanvivit earlier than the musician Kayne West got here for dinner.
In line with a Chronicle report, somebody referred to as the upscale Thai restaurant and requested for a final minute reservation for “a desk with Noma individuals” – Noma is the award-winning Danish restaurant that has lately launched a variety of vegetarian and vegan garums. When the get together hit, the chef and noma proprietor René Redzepi (or anybody related to the restaurant) was nowhere to be discovered. As an alternative, a waiter found that West and his entourage had settled within the restaurant’s semi-private eating room.
Sarcastically, Techamuanvivit instructed the Chronicle that the not very elaborate ruse was fully pointless as it might have been each keen and capable of accommodate the group in the event that they referred to as and dropped the world well-known musician’s title. However that does not imply she’s ditching West and his group for the stunt.
“I went to the desk and requested which of you labored for my pal Rene? Oh sure, I’ve, ”Techamuanvivit tweeted on Thursday afternoon.

A girl on the desk merely replied, “He is not right here,” she instructed the Chron.
The group was well mannered, undemanding, and loved the meals, in response to Techamuanvivit. They ate Som Tum Mamuang (spicy mango salad with cashew nuts), Gaeng Rawang Muan (hen roulade in inexperienced curry), and Gaeng Kua Pla (black cod with curry), the proprietor additionally stated.
Since Nari is one in every of San Francisco’s most famed eating places, it isn’t that the workers aren’t used to seeing celebrities within the eating room. Nonetheless, some have been “very, very fangirl-excited” to see West whereas others have been dissatisfied to not see Redzepi, Techamuanvivit stated. And whereas, to most of us, it might by no means fairly make sense why some of the well-known musicians on the planet (or somebody on their behalf) has to drop somebody by title with the intention to get preferential therapy, the mysterious caller may be excited they needed to do not eat McDonald’s for dinner.
