2009_08_martinihouse.jpgThe economic climate is a mess for San Francisco restaurants, but it might be even worse in Wine Country. Take for example St. Helena's struggles, epitomized by Todd Humphries, chef/owner of Martini House: "As for dining, Humphries said his catering business is off 60 percent, restaurant sales are down 20 to 25 percent and that the size of his wine cellar inventory has dropped by $50,000. That’s worrisome, because restaurants account for the lion’s share of sales tax revenues that make up 31 percent of the city’s budget." [SHS]
