Bay Wolf Restaurant, Run by Former Instructor Michael Wild, to Close After 40 Years in Oakland

SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE -- The comparison to Chez Panisse, which opened three years before Bay Wolf, comes up often. Much like Alice Waters, Wild had no formal training when he opened the restaurant after a decade of teaching English at San Francisco State. For the first 12 years, Wild was a fixture on the line, and even today, he still writes the menus with chef Louis Le Gassic.
