afe Primavera is the latest incarnation of the restaurant at Allied Arts. Opened just last month, it offers an appealing selection of soups, salads, sandwiches and specials. On weekdays, the clientele is mostly “ladies who lunch,” but on Saturdays there is a lively mix of couples and families with young children enjoying themselves.

Prices are lower than those of the Red Currant, which closed after two years in the complex, and portions are generous. Service is a little uneven, but the waiters seem eager to please. Manager Maria Tachis often stops by to chat with diners and pitches in serving when things get too busy. While the warm weather lasts, you won’t find a prettier place for lunch than the Blue Garden adjoining the restaurant. Bistro tables surround a splashing fountain in a garden planted

with hydrangeas and other blue flowers. The setting is so serene that you want to linger all afternoon. The interior of the restaurant is rather stark. It no longer has the cozy ambience of the days when it was operated by the Palo Alto Auxiliary to Children’s Hospital — black tables and chairs beg for some color. Our hostess assured us there would be plenty of decorations for the coming holidays. On a first visit to Cafe Primavera, two of us chose daily specials. My three lamb

chops, served on a bed of warm cabbage salad, were a bargain for $12. One guest ordered the “grown up” grilled cheese with tomato basil soup ($10). The cheese was nicely served on Acme bread, but there was also cheese in the soup, which seemed a little excessive. A prawn salad ($10) didn’t fare as well. It was six grilled prawns on top of mixed greens that looked as if they had been poured from a bag. Creamy See CAFE PRIMAVERA, page 23

dressing, I think it was blue cheese, was on the side. We got a kick out of hearing from a friend that lamb chops, prawns and tomato basil soup were also served at a private party she attended at Allied Arts the night before. For dessert, we shared a â&#x20AC;&#x153;French purseâ&#x20AC;? ($6), a warm pastry filled with mixed berries, and a generous serving of vanilla bean gelato ($6). Both were nicely served, with garnishes of fresh raspberries and sprigs of mint. On another visit, my companion ordered the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wedge BLTAâ&#x20AC;? ($12), a bountiful mix of bacon, butter lettuce, heirloom tomatoes, and avocado, with herb dressing. The roasted beet salad ($9), served with lots of slender haricots verts, blue cheese, and orange segments, was fresh and flavorful. We had a long wait for our slice of lemon drop bundt cake ($6), with more of the delicious vanilla gelato. We werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t able to eat outside on a recent Saturday, as a bridal shower was in progress on the terrace and chairs were set up in the garden for a 3:30 p.m. wedding. It was fun to sit inside and watch all the outside activity. We both ordered sandwiches. The chicken club ($12) was the winner. It came with tasty potato salad and had lots of nice chicken slices, lettuce, tomato, bacon, blue cheese, avocado and pesto aioli on a ciabatta roll. It was almost a flavor overload. I wouldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve skipped the blue cheese and used mayo instead of the aioli.

My friend was disappointed in the Greek vegetarian sandwich ($10) of feta, cucumbers, tomatoes, and artichokes, on Acme bread. She doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like cucumbers, and there were lots of cucumbers and very little artichoke. Neither of us cared for the kalamata olive aioli...too strong and salty. Another Allied Arts visitor recommends the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fish Poâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Boyâ&#x20AC;? ($14). It features petrale sole, caramelized onion, lettuce, tomato and remoulade sauce on a ciabatta roll. There is also a BYOB (build your own burger, $13). It includes 8 ounces of beef with lettuce, tomatoes, red onions, pickles and fries. Addons, such as cheese, avocado and bacon, are $1 per topping. Joanna Biondi is the proprietor of Cafe Primavera.

Don’t overlook autumn’s gnarly but tasty bounty By Yvonne Tally


erched upon my kitchen stool, lingering over a glass of Domenichelli petit sirah and nibbling on a bruschetta of toasted Japanese eggplant and sweet red onion, I am struck at how delightfully relaxed autumn makes me feel; it is the close to summer and the lull before the holidays. Pumpkin patches sprout up in grocery store parking lots, and flip-flops are tossed to the back of our closets (unless you work at Abercrombie and Finch), while comfy sweaters, hot cocoa and hearty cabernets are brought front and center. As the autumn breeze begins to bustle outside our windows and leafs silently drift from their tree branches, we say goodbye to the last few good tomatoes and hello to nubby roots and robust onions. The autumn greeting card is filled with gnarly veggies peeking over the tops of the many boxes of produce at the Sunday morning Menlo Park Farmers’ Market. Autumn vegetables are earthy but light; zucchini, eggplant, Brussels sprouts, and celery are some of my favorites. They are the misunderstood vegetables, often overlooked for their more glamorous cousins such as fennel, French beans, and leeks. However, I say, give the not so popular players a chance. Soup, risotto, chili, and pasta

become the darlings of restaurant menus, as well as my own. I’ve recently added one more staple to my autumn menu, and that is gnocchi (pronounced nyo-kee). These tiny pillows of potato are quick boiled in salted water, drained and dressed with a bit of Parmigiano-Reggiano and extra virgin olive oil. Gnocchi is delicious added to soups and is a perfect partner for a myriad of autumn vegetables. Using a food processor or grater is a quick and easy preparation method. Autumn vegetables may be easily sauteed or oven roasted, then incorporated into sauces with those “menu darlings,” as a bruschetta topping, or as an autumn salad. The possibilities are endless. Just be sure to treat them like those cute and lovely summer vegetables; eat them often, while they are in season, and with good friends and even better wine.

Zucchini & Celery Gnocchi This is a quick dish and great the next day — a little goes a long way. Serve with an apple and butter lettuce salad.

The will and any codicils are available for examination in the file kept by the court. THE PETITION requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act.

Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed action.) The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority. A HEARING on the petition will be held on October 23, 2009 at 9:00 a.m. in Dept.: 14, Room: 8B of the Superior Court of California, San Mateo County, located at 400 County Center, Redwood City, CA 94063.

Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney. IF YOU ARE A CREDITOR or a contingent creditor of the deceased, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within four months from the date of first issuance of letters as provided in section 9100 of the California Probate Code. The time for filing claims will not expire before four months from the hearing date noticed above. YOU MAY EXAMINE the file kept by the court. If you are a person interested in the estate, you may file with the court a Request for Special Notice (form DE-154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition or account as provided in Probate Code section 1250. A Request for Special Notice form is available from the court clerk. Attorney for Petitioner: /s/ Barbara J.
