Is it hard to go from a top restaurant in a big city like San Francisco to a new restaurant here?
Laboa: I’m not a young chef who wants to be famous. I don’t really care. I want everybody to have good food.
How do you like it here?
Laboa: I love it. It feels like home. New England people remind me a lot of where I’m from, Genoa. Once you’re friends, you’re friends.
