Outgoing Sens pastry chef and Eggbeater blogger Shuna Lydon has posted her final dessert menu on her blog. It includes a lot of chocolaty/fruity/eggy things and makes us very hungry.
According to Eater SF, a member of the Sens team, Shelly Fields, will take Lydon’s place. Lydon’s departure has caused some amount of buzz that Sens might be in trouble, because, according to Eater SF,
The pastry chef is often the first to go when restaurants begin to cut costs, but in many ways, Lydon—a veteran of biggies like Gramercy Tavern, Citizen Cake, Bouchon, the French Laundry, etc—was the main attraction, so we’d say it’s safe to begin casting nervous glances toward Sens.
In the meantime, if you want to get a taste of Lydon’s final menu, you’d better get in there in the next two weeks.
