Winner Announced! The Best-Designed Restaurant in SFAuthor:California Home And Design
We have just crowned the first winner of the best restaurant design in our monthly online feature: Design Democracy. More than 3,000 votes were cast for the 23 spots nominated for Best-Designed Restaurant in San Francisco, with Local Mission Eatery beating out the rest with 741 votes.
SF Restaurant Design: Local Mission Eatery
San Francisco’s Atelier KS designed Local Mission Eatery with an eye to the surrounding buildings in its Mission District location. During the renovation of the site’s original structure, a 100-plus-year-old Victorian, the design team—Kelli Franz and Seth Pare-Mayer—uncovered thick, Douglas fir floor joists and ceiling beams, which they repurposed to create window frames and a large, communal dining table. To support the restaurant/bakery/cookbook library’s mission as a place to learn, not just eat, the walk-in cooler was fitted with windows that look out to the dining room.
Second and third place went to Twenty Five Lusk and Credo respectively.
