here at Nice Ventures has always been that food is a true universal language,
crossing barriers of culture and ethnicity to bring people together
in their desire to see, to explore, to experiment, and to learn about local
flavors and cooking styles. When we get a taste for what can be discovered
we seek to recreate this authentic cuisine here in San Francisco, modifying
it as necessary for our local variations. The great thing is that California's
is very similar to the Mediterranean climate – allowing for similarity
of seasons, produce, and wine.
More than ever before, American diners, many
of them experienced travelers themselves, are interested in and knowledgeable
about different cuisines and
keep pace with our well-educated customers, our chefs and wine directors
travel to expand their own knowledge and to bring home fresh, exciting ideas.
process, our group gets to travel and learn more about each other and ourselves
and develop as a team.
