Baume Debuts in Palo Alto



    Meet California’s Most Exciting Thought-Leaders
    Welcome to Palo Alto Baume.

    Thursday marks the launch of Bruno Chemel's solo project, Baume.

    Chemel made headlines in December with the messy split from Michelin-starred Chez TJ, and now, he's ready to showcase his "signature molecular gastronomy" in a new 22-seater in Palo Alto.

    The restaurant is named after French chemist Antoine Baume, and is aiming high: the only options are five courses for $78, 10 for $108 and 15 for $148. Should be interesting to see how the challenging menu fares down in the 'burbs. 201 S. California Avenue, Palo Alto; 650-328-8899, website.
