Emerging celebrity chef alert!
Chefs Tony Ferrari and Jonathan Sutton from Hillside Supper Club on Precita Park were just named to Zagat’s “30 Under 30” list for San Francisco:
Former Johnson & Wales classmates Ferrari and Sutton collectively toiled away for years at fine-dining spots like Acquerello, Michael Mina and Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s J&G before realizing their restaurant dream the 2.0 way, by way of pop-ups and a Kickstarter campaign. “The transition from being a cook, to running a pop-up, to opening your own restaurant is like learning how to crawl before you walk”, explains Sutton, who along with his partner breaks the mold of the typical millennial chef. “Chefs our age [24 at the time] are really just beginning their career and have no idea even where to start with opening a place, let alone cooking meat to the correct temperature,” points out Ferrari. Not to mention find money in a city as expensive and competitive as San Francisco. Two and a half years later, HSC, built on the principle of simplicity, sustainability and camaraderie, has become an integral part of the emerging Bernal dining scene, and the guys are eyeing to open a second restaurant, providing the right situation arises.
A second restaurant?! Whaaat?? More dish on Team HSC from Zagat right here.

SF news fewer “fine dining” establishments and more “meat ‘n’ potatoes” restaurants. Dining out is becoming a budget-breaker now, and for what? Eating is so much “of the moment” that it’s just not worth going out when you’re hungry 3 or 4 hours later anyway.
You can get the bacon stuffed crust at pizza hut on a budget.
In all seriousness, peoples tastes have changed and they don’t want stew meat and idaho potatoes. If you are really longing for that, blue plate has a nice meat loaf. I don’t think you’ll leave hungry.
