Craftsman and Wolves
Craftsman and Wolves, the patisserie-cafe in the Mission you love so much is opening up a new location in Russian Hill. Between Polk and Van Ness, this second wave of scrumptious pastries like The Rebel Within and 4505 Smoked Ham and Cheese Twist, will be joining new baked brilliance created by 2011 James Beard Award Winner, Angela Pinkerton.
It's been a solid two months since the foie gras ban set in, and San Francisco is starting to feel the void. Some chefs and entrepreneurs are finding ways to dodge the ban. Take Txoko.
