I found this tiny restaurant just before leaving San Francisco. Lolò Food and Wine is in Mission. Lolò is the nickname of Lorena, she is the wife of the owner but also a playful and colourful designer. I fell in love with the place.
Colorful materials such as recycled glass, synthetic curtains, plastic tablecloths, furry blankets with huge pictures of animals, floral fabrics, shopping bags and patchworked old chairs and sofas. Details include worker’s galoshes for table legs, mirrors adorned with Cloralex bleach bottles, and dresser pulls made from eagle knobs found on Mack truck gear shifts. A complete kaleidoscopic Lolò’s world! Great job!
