Original post made on Jul 20, 2012

It's a beautiful thing to sit in one of the pocket-park sidewalk cafes on Castro Street and gossip, people-watch or just enjoy the delicious summer weather under canopied trees.

1. Three cheers to Dale Bentson for visiting three times before writing up a restaurant review. Newspaper budget pressures of recent years have reduced the practice of in-depth research for such articles, but it shows in the results.

2. I hope the "French" in the subtitle (and on the article's Page-1 teaser) doesn't confuse anyone. In my contacts with this restaurant since it reopened as B'Zu, continuity from Zucca's past Mediterranean menu (things like the venerable Meze platters) was always stressed. The article's content indeed supports this Mediterranean focus.

3. Paragraph on B'Zu's interior suggested a face-lift. Yet even if not to the author's contemporary ideal, this restaurant did close and remodel its interior for two weeks before opening as B'Zu in March, and updated its look and furnishings from those of the former Zucca. The article didn't mention that.
