Round two with Daniel Ramirez, exec chef of Gaetano's

Daniel Ramirez Gaetano's 3760 Tejon Street 303-455-9852 www.gaetanositalian.com/

Part one of my interview with Daniel Ramirez, exec chef of Gaetano's, ran yesterday; this is part two of our chat.

Favorite food city in America: San Francisco is unrivaled when it comes to food diversity, and it's also the home to some of the country's oldest and best Italian restaurants. In 1999, I went there for the first time for a two-day manager meeting and got to eat at some of the old-school Italian restaurants there, including Fiore d' Italia in the Hotel San Remo. It was amazing.
