July 26, 2021

Dear friends,

Because our staff has been exposed to COVID, we will be closed this Wednesday through Saturday. We are fortunate to have a staff that is 100% vaccinated, and to make this choice out of caution rather than fear.

We hope to reopen this Sunday, and will update this space should that change.

We wish everyone good health and well-being!

Chez Panisse Restaurant & Café will resume service in the dining room October 2021—with reservations slated to open in September. More information will come soon.

The market and weekly take-out menu will continue until further notice.
