san francisco

The gilded age of Paris in San Francisco, continues on.  A split level restaurant space gets a makeover with a new second floor bar and dining room taking over a low ceilinged mezzanine.  The ground floor with its standing bar of antiqued woodworking, richly padded banquettes and velour wallpaper is illuminated with the incandescent shimmer of early 20th century fixtures and cove lighting.
