New food for the arts
After closing his Tout Sweet Patisseries, Top Chef: Just Desserts season one winner Yigit Pura has returned as the executive pastry chef of SF’s Global Gourmet Catering. And the catering company has recently taken over the food and beverage contract at the War Memorial Opera House, Davies Symphony Hall, the Herbst Theatre, and Veterans Lobby. That means refreshed menus — and Pura’s sweet sensibilities — at Cafe at the Opera, the North Box Restaurant, and Cafe Valor, as well as intermission bars.
