We spent the weekend with “fewer, better” fashion brand, Cuyana, in the heart of their home town, San Francisco. To celebrate their city guide in collaboration with one of our favorite print mags, Cereal, Cuyana hosted a few favorite local photographers, bloggers and editors to experience their guide to San Francisco in real life. Every stylish spot included on our tour through the city was completely TCM-approved and we’re sharing our favorites below.
Song Tea + Ceramics| Yes, coffee. But tea too. And when our craving for tea is stirred, we head straight to Song for their lovely, small curation of loose leaf teas. The understated and airy space is like a gallery of tea, all curated by owner Peter Luong who can be found giving in-depth tea tastings and helping tea shoppers find the perfect blend. To try: Visit Song before the holidays for incredible ceramics from Portland potters.
The Progress| We’ve heard impressive things about Chef Stuart Brioza of State Bird Provisions (as if the line out the door each night doesn’t tell you everything you need to know), but when we experienced his new sister restaurant, The Progress, next door all of the buzz proved to be true. Always a sucker for atmosphere, we loved the long thin dining room which feels like a neighborhood haunt and a high-end art experience at the same time. The wide open kitchen truly inspires confidence. To try: Eat everything. And take a look at their artful private event space for special events.
The SF Moma| The San Francisco MOMA has recently reopened after years of remodeling. Their collection of modern art is stunningly comprehensive and the museum has been designed to welcome the city right on in. Their enormous green living wall is the largest on the West Coast and tours of various galleries can be accessed through an app by phone. To try: The new museum restaurant boast top dishes from various award-winning restaurants and chefs around the world. A must visit!
March| Spend a lot of time at home in the kitchen? Visit this homewares shop for the ultimate in chic, minimal kitchen goods that’ll have you swooning over every culinary chore. Favorites in shop include Blackcreek Mercantile cutting boards and spice bowls, Azmaya Japanese dinnerware. To try: The shop now hosts family style suppers!
