Evolving City, Evolving Restaurants

April 21, 2015 panel discussion: There’s no question that San Francisco has changed, but one thing that remains the same is its place at the forefront of restaurant innovation. Now that its signature local and sustainable fare has hit the mainstream, the City by the Bay is serving it family style, making it casual, and incorporating it into Chinese, Thai, and other cuisines. The dining scene has also been adapting to economic forces, like the influx of tech dollars, the displacement of the workforce by rising rents, and the minimum wage increase. In this panel discussion, restaurateurs discussed the challenges, opportunities, and trends in the ever-evolving landscape of eating out in San Francisco. Speakers: Erin Archuleta, co-owner of ICHI Sushi + NI BarJoe Hargrave, owner of Tacolicious,  Mosto, and Chino; and Thad Vogler, owner of Bar Agricole and Trou Normand. Moderated by Allie Pape, editor of Eater SF.
