Food-lovin' pulses began to race a few months ago when word got out that Chef Michael Tuohy, who first inspired loyal fans with his long-closed Chef's Cafe, was taking over Marra's Seafood joint to open WOODFIRE GRILL
. Tuohy has infused his Northern Californian sensibility into both the warm, wood-paneled space and the ultra-seasonal menu. Expect tapas-sized plates of coddled vegetables, grilled meats and seafood perfect for the upcoming autumnal weather, and an exquisite cheese course.
