Meet Michael Bauer's Replacement, Soleil Ho

I love her already.

  • She loves regional Chinese cuisine, especially Xian-style food, which she finds “really compelling and delicious. I just love a wheat bun.”

  • Ho hasn’t been in the Bay Area long, but she mentioned already eating at Dyafa, Reem Assil’s Middle Eastern restaurant in Oakland; Slanted Door (“I do prefer the little Vietnamese restaurants, no offense to Charles”); and Beauty’s Bagels (“pretty good”).

She won’t bother with the anonymity charade, she will spend more time in the East Bay, and never once mentioned Cal-Italian or tasting menus.

An she has such a lovely, evocative name.
