Perhaps, if Willie Brown had his way. According to Inside Scoop SF, Willie Brown believes a restaurant run by McCalls could rival some of the best on both coasts. In a recent article the former SF mayor compliments new restaurant Eleven Madison Park on the east coast then passes the praise our way while speaking of a dinner service recently orchestrated by our top-notch staff.
“I tell you McCalls ought to be a restaurant,” said Willie Brown following the Junior Committee of the Fine Art’s 8th annual MidWinter Gala. McCalls “presented a salad that was as good as what I got at Eleven Madison Park. The salad was made with beautiful Little Gem lettuces and shaved Parmesan and it was really just spectacular.”
Showcasing impressive events in spaces customarily void of all things culinary takes insane organization and bounds of creativity. At McCalls we have a passion for pulling this off seamlessly and Willie Brown has taken note. “Somebody should tell McCall that if he opened a restaurant and kept the same menu they do for the big events like that one—a very simple menu—it would be as successful as Boulevard,” he continued. “If Quince can cater and run a restaurant, I don’t know why McCalls can’t.”
Leave it to Willie Brown to get the wheels in our head turning. For now we’ll stick to doing what we do best, organizing memorable events with spectacular cuisine.
