As if Gabriella chef Sean Baker weren’t busy enough – the word is that he’s the culinary wunderkind putting together the menu for a new winery cafe. . . . Meanwhile, we’re told, Jessica Yarr (formerly of Theo’s and Gabriella) has taken her pastry expertise to the fabulous River Cafe, where desserts already set incredibly high standards. Yarr emailed to tell me that she will be returning to Theo’s this summer to finesse even more pastry pyrotechnics, so now would be a great time to make a reservation at the Soquel landmark restaurant.

Rumors exist to be confirmed, so email me if you’ve got any supporting data, when you’re not busy watching the fires and floods on TV.
