Meanwhile in Mountain View

Never one to mince words, Chez TJ owner George Aviet shares that, aside from the whole Michelin star brouhaha, the economy has hit his restaurant hard too: "Ever since the recession hit Silicon Valley, Aviet says, he has been operating with many fewer customers, down by as much as 60 percent some evenings. For a restaurant with so little seating to begin with -- as much as fits in the intimate rooms of a small historic house on Villa Street -- that doesn't afford much revenue." [MVV, previously]
