I went to brunch today to Butler and The Chef and was excited to be greeting by one of the Google Maps “Favorite Places” icons. Favorite Places is a new Google Maps project that launched last month to help users explore local expert's favorite places in cities around the world. Google Maps asked local experts to identify on their own Google Map places where they like to go, and why. There is also a “live” Google Map icon at each place in the city. Butler and The Chef is one of Alice Water’s favorite places in San Francisco. Unfortunately, it is a lot of peoples favorite place which is why we had to wait over 30 minutes for a table. The owner made the wait more sweet by sharing one of his scrumptious waffles with the crowd. The food was worth the wait. My La Parisienne Crepe was delicious filled with eggs, ham, off course cheese and the knowledge that Alice Waters loves it too.
