Crescendo Ventures Ahi Tuna Swims Onto S.F. Restaurant's Internet-Themed Menu

Apr 03, 2001, 01:00 ET from Crescendo Ventures

    PALO ALTO, Calif., April 3 /PRNewswire/ -- At San Francisco's Venture
 Frogs Restaurant, you can browse through a plate of Industry Standard
 Vegetarian Skewers. Sink your teeth into an Inktomi Asian Burger. Or, sample
 Crescendo Ventures Ahi Tuna, the latest addition to the menu at the
 Internet-themed pan-Asian restaurant.
     Crescendo Ventures, a Palo Alto-based global venture capital firm, chose
 the Ahi Tuna from the list of dishes after an extensive due diligence process.
 In this case, that meant a dozen or so of the firm's partners and associates
 traveling to the restaurant and sampling almost every item on the menu. Ahi
 Tuna came out the clear winner.
     "It's absolutely delicious," said Victoria Lewis, director of corporate
 communications at Crescendo Ventures. "The return on your investment is
 definitely worth the trip up to the City, and we're thrilled to be part of
 this tradition."
     Venture Frogs Restaurant, located at 1000 Van Ness Ave. at O'Farrell,
 features a variety of dishes named after companies that have become synonymous
 with the Internet world. Other items include Upside Wild Flavored Wings,
 Sun Sichuan Fries and CNET Kyoto Salmon.
     "Crescendo Ventures is a perfect fit for our theme," said Richard Hsieh of
 Venture Frogs Restaurant. "They are an international firm and they help grow
 high-tech companies. The Ahi Tuna is an excellent dish to represent them at
 our restaurant."
     Those who would like to try the dish from the comfort of their own homes
 can order delivery of Crescendo Ventures Ahi Tuna, as well as all other
 Venture Frogs menu items, from Kozmo.com, Waiters on Wheels, or Waiter.com.
