Flying Pigs and Atelier Crenn

I read with interest Elle Magazine's recent profile of chef Dominique Crenn's new San Francisco restaurant Atelier Crenn. Although the restaurant seems a bit chi-chi for my tastes (as Crenn says, “You can’t come by for a glass of wine or a salad, it’s an experience") the ambition is inspiring. My favorite bit from the interview:

“I wish everyone could have the luxury of realizing their dreams, if only for a short time,” Crenn says. She has a tattoo on her right forearm of a girl gazing up at a small, perennially fluttering winged pig, “When pigs fly,” says Crenn, explaining the image, “it’s all possible.”
