Brunch at P

The Annex

ST. MICHAEL’S ALLEY FILLS A MID-MORNING NICHE IN PALO ALTO Story by Sheila Himmel // Photos by Michelle Le

eople who love brunch complain that Palo Alto doesn’t have it. The one shining light is St. Michael’s Alley, proudly serving hearty and sophisticated California favorites on Saturdays and Sundays since 1993. On regular weekends, reservations aren’t accepted. You show up and wait — up to an hour on Sundays, which has prompted some regulars to switch their allegiance to Saturday.

But for the annual brunchoriented holidays, diners can — and must — make reservations. As we all know, the mother of all brunch holidays is May 11. Easter and Mother’s Day feature fixed-priced menus with mimosas, as well as seating in both the five-year-old restaurant on Homer Avenue and the 55-yearold cafe, former bakery and waitContinued on next page

ing room on Emerson Street. Jenny Youll and Mike Sabina bought the restaurant from founder Vernon Gates 21 years ago. They bring degrees in economics, psychology and mechanical engineering to the table — and all have proved essential. “With three degrees, we have the basics for running a restaurant,” Sabina said. It was the usual story: Easterners come west to Palo Alto to attend Stanford University and never turn back. Buying was supposed to be a short-term project, meant to feed Youll’s love of baking. Now they have two children and 37 employees, mostly long-term. The average length of service is a dozen years. Family brunch has long been central to St. Mike’s mission, starting with Youll’s pancakes and evolving into lunch fare and later hours. When they expanded into the two converted condos on Homer Avenue, the plan was to add brunch when time and energy allowed. So far, they haven’t. Brunch is still a weekends-only thing, served at “The Annex” on Emerson Street, with the exception of Easter and Mother’s Day, when brunch is served at the Homer Avenue location, as well.

LIVE MUSIC The Duet of Kenya Baker & Codany Holiday

Cucina Venti is proud to feature the award winning Kenya Baker Live every Wednesday - Thursday from 5:30-8:30 Kenya has toured as lead guitarist for Grammy winner Joss Stone for four years, performing for celebrities and dignitaries all over the world.


8FFLFOE As diners will hear, children are welcome. Tables are topped with wire baskets containing condiments and crayons, as well as white butcher paper — the better for drawing. Walls are brightened with large, food-oriented nature photographs featuring shallots, potatoes and perhaps a friendly cow. Remnants of olden days include the bar, where four people can sit, and the grandmotherevoking chandeliers. Pastries rotate between multiple varieties of scones, morningglory muffins, cinnamon rolls and other heavy-duty favorites from the early ‘70s bakery. Generous champagne flutes ($6.75) contain soothing mimosas and Cape Codders (cranberry juice and champagne). Brunch being a convivial meal, these beverages also come in carafes ($32). The same goes for fresh orange and grapefruit juices ($3.75 a glass; $15 a carafe). Many restaurants put out pancakes and waffles, or a fussy little menu, and call it brunch. And then they charge extra for real maple syrup. Not St. Michael’s. Enjoy that syrup on French toast made with soft bread, Belgian waffles, or four varieties of buttermilk pancakes. All run $11. There’s an egg dish to please every taste, from two eggs any style

($13 with pancakes, bacon and potatoes) to a ham-and-grilledpineapple omelet ($16) to smoked salmon eggs Benedict ($18). Accompanying herbed Yukon gold potato wedges are perfection: crunchy on all sides, creamy and buttery inside. The St. Mike’s omelet ($15) maintains the correct ratio of egg to insides: With each bite you get some egg (not too puffy), crispy bacon, sauteed mushrooms, melt-

ed cheddar and cream cheese. The omelet comes with a small square baking-powder biscuit. Chilaquiles ($16) especially pleased my spice-averse companion. Strips of fresh corn tortillas were draped in scrambled eggs and ham, enlivened but not overcome by green chilies, feta cheese and tomatoes. Accompaniments come in the form of creamy avocado slices, black beans, salsa, sour cream and

those great potatoes. Brunch is a challenge for vegans, but vegetarians can run wild and gluten-free items are highlighted. The Annex seats 50 people inside, 10 or so outside. At nonbrunch times it is used a lot for private parties, from company events to 70th birthday celebrations. Mike Sabina sums it up: “Most of our customers are regulars.� V

PARTICLE FEVER---1/2

John Turturro in Fading Gigolo

Fading Gigolo

--

(Guild) The urban fantasy “Fading Gigolo” almost gets by on its idiosyncrasies. First, there is the setting that keeps on giving: New York City. And then, there’s NYC’s favorite cinematic son, Woody Allen, schlemiel-ing it up as an unlikely pimp. And let’s not forget the Hasidic neighborhood watch and tribunal that threaten to derail his lucrative new business, even as Sharon Stone and SofÌa Vergara angle for a menage a trois with John Turturro’s shy “ho.” What, as they say, could go wrong? But for all this, the film never quite rises above a base curiosity value. As written and directed by Turturro, “Fading Gigolo” is sincere and humbly ambitious, manners at odds with its farcical premise. As a result, Turturro’s film is jack of two trades, master of neither. The comedy is limp, goosed occasionally by the still-funny comic performer Allen, while the drama is either unwelcome (put Woody Allen in front of a Hasidic tribunal, and it’s time to cut loose, not tug the reins) or unsatisfying in its sedateness or its unlikelihood. Allen plays Murray Schwartz, a bookseller who loses his shop to rising rent and stagnant business. While soaking up the commiseration of his florist friend Fioravante (Turturro), Murray not so idly mentions that his dermatologist Dr. Parker (Stone) wants to arrange a threesome with her friend Selima (SofÌa Vergara) and some stud. Parker’s willing to pay a thousand bucks, Murray could sure use a commission,

and, well, how about it? Though understandably reluctant, Fioravante relents for some reason, and we’re off to the races. Or we would be, if this were a Woody Allen comedy from twenty years ago. Turturro instead treats this idea as a kind of photogenic fable — or feature-length public service announcement — to remind people that sex is good for their mental health, so why not have some today? The business with Stone and Vergara turns out to be something of a red herring (plus it’s difficult to accept these two as sexual neurotics who need or want prostitutes); rather, the film’s heart resides with Hasidic widow Avigal (Vanessa Paradis, a striking presence), who hasn’t felt the touch of a man in some time and languishes as a result, a notion that might be touching if it didn’t feel so patronizing. And so it goes: at times thuddingly earnest (“This is what you do,” Avigal tells Fioravante. “Bring magic to the lonely”), at times, jazzily, goofily endearing (as in Allen fancying the street name “Dan Bongo” or the film’s falling action of “We’re not dead yet” male bonding). The characters, including Liev Schreiber’s lovelorn Hasidic neighborhood patrolman, are established in shorthand, which undercuts all of the attempts at drama, and Turturro’s romanticism keeps undercutting the humor before it has a chance to get satisfyingly irreverent. Call it comoedia interruptus. Rated R for some sexual content, language and brief nudity. One hour, thirty minutes. — Peter Canavese

In the documentary “Particle Fever,” physicist turned filmmaker Mark Levinson gets (and thrillingly shares) VIP access to a pivotal moment in scientific advancement, as particle physicists rev up CERN’s Large Hadron Collider to reproduce the conditions just after the Big Bang. Or as David Kaplan of Johns Hopkins University halfjokes, that’s what they’re telling people. The real reason for the experiments is “trying to understand the basic laws of nature,” a goal with no military or commercial application. Levinson has chosen articulate spokespeople in Kaplan, Stanford’s Savas Dimopoulos, Harvard’s Nima Arkani-Hamed, Italy’s Fabiola Gianotti, CERN’s Martin Aleksa, “Beam Operation Leader” Mike Lamont and post-doc Monica Dunford. Covering from 2007 to 2012, Levinson’s film pulls from over 500 hours of footage assembled by legendary editor Walter Murch (“The Conversation,” “The English Patient”), as it observes CERN’s search for the Higgs particle, the center of the standard model of elementary particles. The spectacularly epic machinery itself makes for a great visual, but the drama is on a human scale: The film efficiently reminds us of how CERN had to play politics, dispel hysterical fears, weather a media frenzy and present its results under intense public scrutiny. If the film disappoints, it only does so by not being yet more rigorous in its scientific detail. Still, even a science dunce will walk away with a basic understanding of the project and a strong impression of the community around this important research. Not rated. One hour, 39 minutes. — P.C.

THE OTHER WOMAN -1/2

I can’t speak for the women in my life, but I suspect they would be offended by the ones depicted in “The Other Woman.” Cameron Diaz plays Carly Whitten, a highpowered Manhattan lawyer used to serial dating more than one man at a time. So it’s a pleasant surprise for her that she’s lasted two months with her latest beau, investment whiz Mark King (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau). But Carly’s optimism comes crashing down when she makes a surprise visit to Mark’s Connecticut house and meets his wife, Kate (Leslie Mann). But before you can say “The First Wives Club,” the duo bond and begin working together to perpetuate respective charades with Mark as they plot their next moves. And there’s where the movie definitively departs from our reality. It’s hard to willingly suspend disbelief for this distasteful plot, and even harder when Diaz doesn’t act like someone who’s achieved her professional status, and Kate remains attracted to this demonstrable cad, even when a second mistress turns up in the form of jiggly Amber (Kate Upton). Mann certainly works it and gets the odd line that’s funny on its own merits, and there’s plenty of cheap farce and slapstick humiliations. But by the time we’re into the pandering pranking phase, discriminating audiences will be looking to the exits. PG-13 on appeal for mature thematic material, sexual references and language. One hour, 49 minutes. — P.C.
