Regarding Tosca’s Legendary Mistress of Ceremonies


“Nothing lasts forever, and it’s crazy to try to hold on to it, but I’m happy to say that Tosca is, and certainly was, a world-class literary and artistic bar. Jeannette was the Elaine of the West Coast. She took a lot of writers under her wing, along with actors, artists and dancers.” — Local science journalist Timothy Ferris speaking the Chron over the weekend regarding Jeannette Etheredge, who ended her three decades as owner of the beloved Tosca Café on Sunday. New owners Ken Friedman and April Bloomfield intend to welcome Jeannette back to her stool, however, post-renovation, whenever she likes. [Chron, Earlier]
