Michelin released a list of 74 “Bib Gourmand” restaurants for 2011. At these restaurants, diners can get two courses and a glass of wine or dessert for $40 or less. Congratulations to the Bib Gourmand winners!
We’d also like to give a special shout out to a few of our customers that made the list -

This summer we took a wonderful 1-day cooking class at Tante Marie. We had such a fantastic time that we wanted to share our experience with you! Tante Marie – a sweet 2-room cooking school located in San Francisco’s North Beach district – held a course called “Pasta: Old & New.”
Robert Yick Company made a custom chinese wok range for Wang’s Grand Chinese Restaurant in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
We’re getting tech savvy! After doing work for Twitter, VMware, and Google offices, it’s about time we embrace the web. Robert Yick Company now has a Twitter, where we post tidbits about restaurants, pictures of delicious food, and updates on current projects. We’re also starting to make videos!
But since we’re doing this for you guys… we wanted to get your feedback. What types of videos, blog posts, and twitter updates do you find the most helpful or interesting (i.e. How-to tips, new restaurant openings, fun images)? Leave a comment or shoot us an email to:

Robert Yick Company built stainless steel counters for the Twitter office in San Francisco (pictures below). We made several types of custom counters, including:
- a 13-foot landing area with a sink (used as a coffee station)
- a 15-foot island (lunchroom counter)
- an ‘L’ shaped counter
After working with Twitter, we became inspired to start our own Twitter account! Check out @yickcompany on Twitter and follow us for updates!
Here are photos of the Twitter counter during its installation. The plastic coating protects the stainless steel from scratches and damage.
