Outerlands san francisco restaurant

Restaurant We Love: Outerlands in San Francisco

The rustic wooden interior of Outerlands is as much of a draw to the celebrated Outer Sunset eatery as its famous loaves of bread, which are baked in-house, daily.

Black Hogg in Silver Lake

While diners can certainly feast on brioche boxes, Prince Edward Island mussels, and uni toast at Black Hogg, a sweet little eatery in the Silver Lake neighborhood of Los Angeles, California, it's the cool minimalist interior that people are talking about.

The Corner Store, San Francisco

Tiring of the Prohibition-era style pervasive in San Francisco's bars and restaurants, the owners and design team behind recently opened The Corner Store opted to channel "something more in tune with the happy, hopeful, and welcoming vibe of a 1950s community corner store and soda shop—minus the kitsch and cliche of a typical diner," says Clinton Miller, the project's architect. Located on Masonic at Geary, right above the Geary underpass, the restaurant is a welcome addition to the neighborhood with a menu that tastes as good as the interior looks (be sure not to miss the house burger with bacon jam). "I wanted to create a light airy interior where someone could just as easily sit and enjoy the classic food with a homemade soda at lunch or a boozy milkshake after a nice long dinner," says Miller.

Coffee Break: Heath Ceramics and Blue Bottle

Heath Ceramics recently opened a factory and retail location in San Francisco and partnered with Blue Bottle Coffee to open a cafe inside of the 60,000-square-foot former industrial laundry. Thanks to the keen design eye of Commune—who helped with the look and feel of the interiors—and structural wizardry of Charles Hemminger of hemmingerarchitects—who helped refine the architecture—Heath has a new home at 18th Street and Alabama befitting its wares. "We needed more space," says Heath co-owner Cathy Bailey, who had a studio in the neighborhood years ago. "The original building in Sausalito was built in 1959 with the agenda to be a dinnerware factory. Over the years, it's grown and we have no more space. The difference between the new Heath and the old Heath is that we do everything ourselves—sell directly, manufacture, and design in-house. We didn't want to build way out in the valley, away from everyone; we wanted to stay close to customers, in a vibrant environment."

Borrego cocktails

Cocktail Hour in Borrego Springs

In our September issue, we visited the Borrego Springs, California, home of Doug and Stacey Chapman Paton. Not only are they great collectors of mid-century art and design, but the couple also hosts the grooviest parties in town. Dab hands at the cocktail shaker, they shared with us two cocktail recipes that Stacey invented, both reliant on the fabulous citrus that grows in the nearby desert. Try this at home.

Coffee Break: Albany's Local 123

San Francisco has its fair share of third-wave coffee so we jumped at the chance to visit one of the East Bay's newest offerings. On a pleasantly sleepy stretch of Solano Avenue, Berkeley-based Local 123 opened a cafe within Flowerland nursery. From a charming 1969 Airstream Streamline Princess trailer, proprietor Frieda Hoffman and her business partner Alex Ebel churn out lattes, macchiatos, single-drip cups of coffee, and more. And the setting—a verdant nursery—couldn't be more right. Hoffman's "perma-popup" is opposite of what we've come to expect from the many cafes that seem to be victims of their success. Instead of chaotic snaking lines of undercaffeinated denizens jonesin' for their morning fix, we were treated to a peaceful garden setting, and gladly traded the drone of indie rock for the chirp of birds. Local 123's menu features coffee from Four Barrel, vegan donuts from Pepples, and pastries from Starter Bakery. Have a look inside the cafe in our slideshow.
