First Bite: Prospect Is Pulling Them In

The above picture is one of the official press photos of Prospect—the sweeping SoMa restaurant just opened by Team Boulevard.

Pebble Beach Food & Wine: Nancy Oakes' Favorite Olive Oil and a Prospect Update

Day three at Pebble Beach Food & Wine, picking up where Jessica left off at the afternoon cooking demo with Boulevard’s Nancy Oakes and Pamela Mazzola. The scene was certainly no Thomas Keller Jesus-fest, but Oakes’ fan base is a slightly different breed. She certainly commands the respect of a room (albeit a post-spa, wine-hazed one), especially when she cooks up an extremely complicated seared abalone with a slow cooked farm egg, a dish she admitted “was not necessarily to be tried at home.” It required a $900 “circulated egg” machine, a lab apparatus that keeps the egg yolk runny while cooking the white. Intense.
