Yeah, the facelift at The Chef is nice.
Small, but significant.
Definitely an improvement.
The couple running it now seem to really "get it" and are super nice and very enthusiastic about keeping it "tiki" while improving the food.
We had a nice chat with them for half an hour.
They want to keep their family business going for another 35 years. They're talking about getting custom tiki mugs - they were going to get them from Dynasty, but I gave them Tiki Farm's info - and they have big plans for further tiki-fication. They dug up a bunch of awesome 8x10 photos from their opening party, there is some amazing stuff there!
