Zuni Café is a restaurant in San Francisco, California. Named after the Zuni tribe,[1] it was established in 1979 by Billy West. In 1981 he hired Vince Calcagno as the manager, who became a business partner in 1987. West and Calcagno hired chef Judy Rodgers (formerly of Chez Panisse) in 1987. [2] Billy West died on July 1, 1994; Calcagno and Rodgers went on to become co-owners.
