Dynamic, New FOH Managers at Avenir Restaurant Group
Recently we've been working with the incredible team at Avenir, assisting them with new hires for their FOH staff. Founded in the summer of 1993, Avenir Restaurant Group
with owner Greg St. Claire, has been dedicated to opening dynamic and individually unique restaurants. Their passion for food, wine, spirits, art and the cultural environment drives their entrepreneurial spirit. They currently have three restaurants in their portfolio: Town, the super popular steakhouse in San Carlos; Milagros, their Latin concept in Redwood City; and Nola, Palo Alto's answer to Mardi Gras. If you haven't had a chance to experience the great hospitality and cuisine of these establishments, get over there soon. You can trust us when we say, you will be well taken care of.

We've always loved Piccino
