A recent collaboration with Blueprint Studios resulted in bursts of pink. Held at the Westin St. Francis and symbolizing San Francisco’s own Ghirardelli Square ~ these flowers evoked feelings of strawberry ice cream sundaes and they even made us drool a bit.  

May your weekend be filled with sweet bursts of color.

 evenings to serve the locally sourced menu of Executive Chef Joshua Skenes with the discerning and cultivated wine pairings of Sommelier Mark Bright. The feel is secret supper club meets informed elegance.  The experience is one of both intimacy and invitation: the tables are small and candle-lit while the kitchen is open and guests can be a part of the culinary magic with wine in hand.
