To our guests,
On rare occasions, we get the opportunity to evolve on a larger scale. Earlier this year, to mark the restaurant’s 20th anniversary, we began one such undertaking. We closed our doors, opened our minds, and asked what we wanted a new Quince to look like.
There’s a lot we hope to achieve with this latest iteration of the restaurant, but we have two main aspirations. First, we want the new Quince to embody the flavors and sensations of Fresh Run Farm, our partner farm in Bolinas and a place that has a profound influence on our cuisine. Second, we hope to create an environment where world-class cooking can be inviting rather than imposing.
This process of evolution is so important. We believe that cuisine and hospitality are lifelong pursuits; there is no mastery in our world. We strive for reflection, reinvention, and self-improvement. We are forever in the process of creating a better version of ourselves, one informed by our experiences in food, art, culture, and life.
We would never have been able to attempt a reimagining as ambitious as this one without the extraordinary dedication of our team and the singular nature of our guests. The boundlessly talented people within our walls and you, our guests—many of whom have been with us for decades—have never failed to understand the nature of our mission. Your graciousness and confidence humbles and inspires us to keep driving forward.
With that in mind, we cannot wait to introduce you to this new version of Quince. We hope you’ll be as excited to join us as we are to welcome you.
With gratitude and anticipation,
Chef Michael & Lindsay Tusk
