Many years ago, I lived in San Francisco and from time to time dined at the Zuni Café. It was not easy getting into the Zuni. The food was, from the beginning, legendary. Among the menu items, was a Roast Chicken - a whole roasted chicken, which took time to prepare - but, was worth the wait.
When Judy Rogers passed away recently, she left us with an exceptional place to dine, a special cookbook (The Zuni Café Cookbook: A Compendium of Recipes and Cooking Lessons from San Francisco's Beloved Restaurant), and all that goes with the art of fine food.
