Local Kitchen & Wine Merchant
Local Kitchen, a highlight of the growing number of Cal-Italian restaurants in San Francisco, has a very SoMa vibe-stark white walls, lofty ceiling, polished industrial accents, and minimal art. A mix of arty folk and dolled-up scenesters from surrounding blocks mingle in the airy space, which holds a long communal table, an open kitchen with sushi bar-style seating, and a small wine bar with a few stools at the back. The most popular menu items are the thin-crust pizzas and truffle frites. At front, a small wine boutique offers a selection of bottles and local artisan foods for retail purchase and, upstairs, Cocoon Urban Day Spa has teamed with Local Kitchen management (also the owners of Oola) to promote good health (yoga) combined with the good life (wine and chocolate). Say yes!
