See, not all professional athletes spend their time at trendy lounges, surrounded by San Francisco’s, ahem, finest. According to the always-excellent Madame Tablehopper, All-Star Game MVP and Seattle Mariners outfielder Ichiro Suzuki spent the majority of his San Francisco visit dining at the Michelin-starred Quince:
Ichiro Suzuki ate at Quince two nights in a row last week. He celebrated his MVP status and his home run at the All Stars Game late into the evening, feasting on risotto with squash blossoms stuffed with lobster, local halibut carpaccio, risotto with petrale sole and extra vecchio balsamic. He was reportedly very gracious.
So Ichiro has good taste in restaurants. Just another reason to love the Japanese superstar.
