Palo Alto: Here we have a special Peninsula sneak peek edition of Eater Inside, courtesy of the Calafia folks down yonder. We took a look at the space last month, and today, she opens to the public. The key name behind the project is Charlie Ayers, better known as the executive chef who made the famed Google Cafeteria the monster it is today. In Calafia, Ayers carried over most of his themes from his prior gig at The Googles—namely, the sustainable angle, reflected in both the physical design and the menu itself. In time, the idea behind the 85-seater is that it will be a dining room, cafe and market all in one, but the market side of the operation won't be open until February. Further reading in the Eater Archives and at FoodGal.
