Re: “Bitter Is Better

More often than not when we fire up the grill, there is a chicory present. They transform to a tender in places, crisp in others texture with lovely bittersweet flavor.

Re: “Triple Shot

Personally, I like the no res rule. It's your restaurant, run it as you will. I had the Tan Tan Ramen. One of the best plates I've ever had in Sonoma County. Ever. Wow. Very nicely done. Will definitely be back... will stand in line... happily.

Re: “Triple Shot

We are enthusiastic local customers that have been in both twice before the reno, and twice since the re-opening.
We have yet to be able to access the Ramen side this year.(2 hour wait, then 90 minute wait for each time respectively), but the no-reservations rule is a mis-step.

We noted while the visit with the 2 hour wait was shown to have both a packed restaurant and bar sides (the first week of re-opening), one week later a 90 minute wait had a virtually empty bar side: 2 folks at the wet bar who eventually got their names called for the Ramen side, and a second couple who left with us after we enjoyed an hour long meal the sampling the awesome bar food menu, this leaving the bar side empty.

Point being, the entire bar, (wet bar, window seats, and the middle bar facing a freezer) was empty by 8:30pm.

Ramen Gaijin has 3 distinct areas of the restaurant: the wet bar (with Window seats), the Ramen side of the restaurant, and then a middle section that straddles both halves of the Restaurant. But the lack of the ability to also serve serve Ramen, at least in the middle 10-stool bar is a mis-step; We would gladly sit there to enjoy the Ramen menu, as I'm sure others would as well when confronted with a very long Ramen-side wait.

Yes, the food is an amazing experience. The drinks too are good, and we will be sure to try their original concoctions on future visits.
But it's the food....you will shake your head in dis-belief that this is available in Sebastopol. (But then again, it's Sebastopol, and we don't need to let the secret out on our jewels.)

We will always come back, the food on both sides is incredible; Sebastopol (no, the entire North Bay) is extremely lucky to have this place to go to. However we worry that the 'no reservations' rule will hurt it, and the limited Ramen seating is just unfortunate. This is apparently because they did not expand the ramen cooking area of the kitchen during the renovation. That's puzzling, as it's called 'Ramen Gaijin', not '1/3 Ramen', or 'Ramen if you're patient'.

Re: “The Climate Menu

This is an excellent article. Climate change is the biggest threat to our survival, which is is why 40,000 people from nearly 200 countries attended the Paris climate change conference last month.

This article presents a unique perspective to the classic phrase that "you are what you eat." Next to the military assault on climate, Big Ag is the next main cause of chaotic climate change. I say this as someone who has operated a small farm that employs organic practices for the last 24 years. I like the phrase that this article quotes from the NY Times--"climatarianism."

I have a new program on KOWS-FM, where I plan to address some of these issues on Jan. 18, Mon., 5-6 p.m., when I interview author Richard Heinberg of the Post Carbon Institute. My program is called "A Better World IS Possible." I have already had two programs on climate change and one on agriculture. You can listen at 107.3 in the Occidental area and on the web at www.kows.fm.

Re: “The Climate Menu

I know this is the Bohemian, and a lot of people who depend upon animal production read your paper, but I was really saddened to read that you're splitting hairs (and feathers) to say that it's better to eat pork and chicken than lamb and beef. In addition, eating vegetables is cheaper than eating meat or fish. It's not a matter of "having the fortune to obsess over artisan, carbon-friendly lifestyles". Our grandparents cooked their own beans and we can, too.
Eating plants is the best way to care for the planet. Period. http://www.cowspiracy.com/facts/
