Sorry, Alice

Once upon a time, no one passed up the opportunity to work at the likes of Chez Panisse, but thanks to all types of soaring costs, more and more out-of-town industry folk might be steering clear of the Bay in favor of other, developing West Coast towns: "Marco Shaw of Fife was on his way to Chez Panisse in Berkeley, Calif., and living in an overpriced, overcrowded house when the lure of Portland's remarkable culinary scene managed to outshine the chance to work at Alice Waters' legendary restaurant. He thought Portland would be a temporary detour on his way to the high altar of American cooking, but he never left town." [OregonLive]
