Does Alice Waters' sabbatical actually change things that much at Chez Panisse? I was under the impression that she set the general direction and culture/mentality of the restaurant, but that she wasn't all that hands-on anymore. In particular, I thought that the chefs all got together and discussed the day's menu, suggesting/contributing dishes, rather than having the executive chef dictate the menu as some restaurants do...
