EaterWire: Changes at Sea Salt While Alice Speaks

BERKELEY—Now that Anthony Paone has abandoned chef duties at T-Rex to concentrate fully on sister restaurant Sea Salt, changes are a-coming: "Sea Salt is now experiencing a long-contemplated menu makeover: Paone is pouring his newly undivided energy into moving beyond the restaurant's seafood-only policy to add meat to the mix ... Paone told us certain diners had always asked for stuff without gills, and the decision to add turf to the menu's traditional surf had been long in coming." [Contra Costa Times]

BERNAL HEIGHTS—None other than Ms. Alice Waters will be at Red Hill Books tomorrow night at 7:30, and she's going to talk to everyone: "She will read from her new book, The Art of Simple Food, have a conversation with everyone in attendance and sign books. Staff from Chez Panisse will be on hand with samples from three recipes ... If you purchase a copy of the book now, we will reserve a seat in your name." [Backpage]

EIGHTIES ROCK BAND LAND—Still looking for some last minute holiday ideas? Hot off the PR wire: "Legendary rock band, Journey, and De La Montanya Winery have come together for the second year in a row to produce a limited edition wine. The De La Montanya family and the band Journey have elected to donate all proceeds to the Greater Bay Area Make-a-Wish foundation." Autographed bottles are $100 (non-autographed $50) and can be purchased through the official site. [Eater Inbox]
