I'll miss Toshi's sushi at Kaygetsu, but I'm glad he and Keiko found a next step they are happy with. My wife and I saw Steve at Kaygetsu occasionally, both with his family and work colleagues, and always found it refreshing that he was treated just like any other regular customer. At least the times we saw him, no one bothered him, and I'm sure he appreciated the chance for a great meal in normal circumstances.

I wish he had been treated with the same respect while trying to build the home in Woodside to live and die.
People were downright nasty.
Bob, at least, appears to be civilized as Jobs was.

Jobs wasn't particularly civilized - so pretending he was is plain weird.

I read this story in SFGate earlier, and their version made it seem as if Steve Jobs lured the owners away, leading to the restaurant's closing and sale. This version in the Almanac paints Steve in a different, more favorable, light.
