Good luck to Three Seasons in getting everything repaired. We're sorry for the fire. You are one of my favorite
restaurants in Palo Alto, you always provide delicious food and a beautiful atmosphere. We will miss you while you are closed.

This is one reason why "mixed-use" buildings like housing over restaurants & grocery stores is a bit scary. The other reason are rodents and roaches like residents living in condos on CA Ave have experienced.

Karma. 3 Seasons owner is the one always calling noise complaints on the restaurants nearby. Source: the officers who had to keep going out on these nonsense calls.

I think your understanding of karma differs from mine, 'Zap'.

I find it hard to believe your accusation knowing the chef/owner of Three Seasons as I do. Besides, what nearby restaurants might be making too much noise? The few seats in back of the Old Pro? Please.

Instead of taking pleasure in this incident, perhaps we all could simply be grateful that nobody was hurt in the blaze?

I wish the Three Seasons team luck with repairing their kitchen and reopening soon--I can't wait to visit them again, to support a long-standing local business, and to enjoy John Le's wonderful take on Vietnamese food!
