nly months old, Station 1 is bringing new life to an old building and new zest to the local restaurant scene.

Station 1 is located in a former fire station built in the 1920s. Later, the little red building on Woodside Road was the site of Nina’s, then John Bentley’s restaurant. Today, young owners Zu and Kristi Tarazi have warmed up the cozy space with red wallpaper, mahogany paneling, and a fireplace, but the hottest thing at Station 1 is the kitchen. It is the domain of Zach Freitas, former

chef de cuisine at Commis in Oakland, who is turning out food as innovative as any found in trendy San Francisco restaurants. He has created a three-course menu ($54) with choices: five appetizers, three main courses and three desserts. You may also order a la carte. The menu needs some deciphering, even for Continued on page 27

St. Francis Center helps families in need live in dignity and become self-supporting members of the community. Since 1986, St. Francis Center has provided women and children with a hospitable place to receive food and clothing. Since then the basic services provided to the community have expanded in order to help families move from dependency to interdependency. Holy Family School - The very first class at Holy Family School graduated from fifth grade in 2007, having been in this nurturing and challenging learning environment since kindergarten. The program has such impressive results that all these graduates have been offered continued education in other private schools at no cost to their families. Twelve six-year-olds make up the current student body of Holy Family School and will continue their education through fifth grade.

Sources of Funding Various corporations and private donors.

Toy Program - The spirit of giving is alive at St. Francis Center year round, but during the holiday´s hard working clients receive something beyond the necessities. Well before dawn on two days in December, parents wait outside for the Toy Program Giveaway to begin. A volunteer assists each mother or father in choosing two new toys or age appropriate gifts for each of their children. The local churches and individuals donate 5,000 new toys annually. Food Program - Early weekday mornings, rain or shine, families from throughout the Redwood City and Menlo Park areas gather on the porch of St. Francis Center for food, clothing and friendship. Dozens of dedicated volunteers package two bags of take-home food for each client family. The Center provides groceries for an average of 2321 persons each month. Clothing Program - Many client families arrive in this area after an uncertain journey from Mexico, El Salvador, or Chile. Parents come carrying their children with only the clothes on their backs. The Center re-homes over 19,000 bags of clothing each year. Laundry Facility - Good hygiene is a prerequisite for securing a decent job and for maintaining good health. St. Francis Center´s laundry and shower facilities give individuals and families the opportunity to do laundry and shower for free by appointment. Community Garden - St. Francis Center responds to families struggling to stay fed while giving the opportunity to experience the simple joys of living in a holistic and practical way with our community garden across the street. It nurtures both body and spirit. Low Income Housing - Around the corner is the St. Francis Apartment complex providing a safe and quiet home for 24 families. Qualifying families pay a rent that is well below market value, giving them an opportunity to live in decent housing while establishing a good credit history. Other Social Services - Personal counseling, Immigration Services, and diaper services through Bay Area Diaper Bank.

“Serving the poor takes many hands; hands to welcome clients into this warm haven, to sort and hand out clothing, tutor adult learners, to stock shelves and bag groceries.”

experienced foodies. We asked our server to explain several terms, including mimolette (a kind of cheese) and urfa biber (pepper flakes), which were served atop smoked spinach soup. And how many local restaurants feature ramp, green garlic, sorrel, quinoa, guanciale, nettles, and parsley root on the menu? The Tarazis have added some nice touches to the dinner service, such as an amuse bouche. One night it was salt-roasted rutabaga topped with julienne of raw rutabaga. Other extras are a palate cleanser before dessert (watermelon soda) and sweets that come with the check. These amenities, plus both owners on the floor making sure everything is going smoothly, make dining at Station 1 seem special. There are drawbacks. The little dining room, which seats 48, is noisy, and the wooden chairs are uncomfortable. Since there is no entryway, every time the front door opens, nearby diners get a blast of cold air. Such annoyances don’t seem to deter diners. On a recent Thursday night, the restaurant was full. As the evening wore on, older well-dressed diners were replaced by a younger set, including CEO-types with their spouses and friends. The Tarazis seem to have found their target audience: young movers and shakers who expect the best and can afford it.

On a recent first visit, we settled on smoked spinach soup and nettle risotto with hen of the woods mushrooms as appetizers. The brilliant green soup was delicious, one of the best things about the meal. Blue cheese overpowered the taste of nettles in the risotto. For the main course, I chose wagyu bavette (skirt steak). The steak was beautifully presented with fat asparagus spears and king oyster mushrooms, and topped with what turned out to be miner’s lettuce. The steak was satisfying and chewy, but I would’ve liked bolder seasoning. Leg of lamb was perfectly cooked and tender. It was served with parsley root, kale and fig. Neither of us had tasted parsley root before. It has a sweetness like parsnips and looked as if it had just been pulled from the earth. For dessert, our choices were chocolate caramel cake with espresso, anglaise, and mint; and vanilla bean custard with strawberry, tangerine, and cinnamon. Chocolate caramel cake was a three-layer cube topped with thick frosting sprinkled with sea salt. The frosting tasted more of chocolate than caramel. The custard was refreshing comfort food.

welcome addition. Along with its nearby neighbor, the Village Pub, the new restaurant shows that dining out can be exciting, even in quiet Woodside. V

Menlo School students in the cast of the “Spelling Bee” musical.

School stages ‘Spelling Bee’ “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee” will be staged by Menlo School students at 8 p.m. on these dates: May 5, 6, 7, 8, 13 and 15. The quirky, offbeat Tonyward-winning musical, with music and lyrics by William Finn, is about a group of awkward middle-school spelling bee finalists looking for their moment to moment to shine. Along the way, “they learn that winners don’t always win, and that losing doesn’t necessarily make you a loser,” says school spokesperson Jill Kasser. The artistic staff includes director Elizabeth Orr, music director Ben Malkevitch, choreographer Jan Chandler, assistant director Mandy Khoshnevisan, and technical director Tripp Robbins. “We’re laughing so much in rehearsals as we discover the vulnerabilities and strengths of these awkward pre-adolescents,” said Ms. Orr. So many auditioned that they decided to double-cast the play. Everyone is in every performance. The principal players are in the chorus on

alternate nights, Ms. Orr said. The chorus includes Kamyar Butt, Hannah Lambing, Megs Malpani, Tara Saha, John Welch, and Chandler Wickers. In the cast on May 7, 8 and 13 are Maxwell Coleman, Brian Cooper, Carly Cozad, Alex Giacomini, Justin Lannin, Katie Lannin, Kevin Marren, Michael Schulze, Peri Steiny, Mycal Tucker, Abhi Veerina, Nicole Wolf and Andrew Klingelhofer. In the cast on May 5, 6 and 15 are Ryan Bowman, Tim Coggins, Matti de los Reyes, Christina Dong, Meg Jenson , Andrew Klingelhofer, Ari Meyers, Lolo Miessi, Mary Nash, Carson Witte and Philip Wu. Play-goes are encouraged to make it a family outing: dress warmly, pack a picnic, and bring your own lawn chairs, sleeping bags and blankets. Email tickets@menloschool.org for tickets, or buy them at the school bookstore or at the door. Admission is $7 for students and $10 for adults. Menlo School is at 50 Valparaiso Ave. in Atherton.

For the 17th year, Menlo Park Library and Kepler’s will celebrate “The Magic of Reading” from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, May 7, at the bookstore, 1010 El Camino Real in Menlo Park. Highlights of the event will be music from the Menlo-Atherton High School jazz and concert bands, and bands and orchestras from Oak Knoll, Encinal and Hillview schools. “Celebration of Reading” will benefit the Belle Haven Library through a percentage of sales at Kepler’s on that day. All musical groups will perform on the plaza in front of the bookstore. The first to perform will be the combined orchestra of the fifth-graders at Oak Knoll and Encinal schools. The two groups opened the program last year and attracted a standingroom-only crowd. Musical groups of the sixththrough eighth-grade at Hillview will then play until 1:30 p.m. In the afternoon, all four Menlo-Atherton bands will play, with the concert band opening and the jazz band closing.

A magnetometer notes anomalies in the Earth’s magnetic field caused by underground minerals that have or do not have magnetic properties.
