Yo! Local Mission Eatery just won California Home & Design reader’s choice award for best designed restaurant in San Francisco!
I would like to think that my 30-foot long installation of geographically ordered screenprints on wood tiles that visually map the Mission District by intersection had something noteworthy to contribute to the execution of this concept, but alas there is no love for (nor even mention of!) Valencia to Vermont to be found anywhere on the website’s otherwise triumphant press release.
Eh, that’s okay. It’s my friends friends Kelli Franz and Seth Pare-Mayer (architects), Sterling Tougas (contractor), Yaron Milgrom and Jake Des Voignes (co-owners) who deserve the kudos for a thoughtfully realized project. I was just happy to be along for the ride.
