Hamilton Fog, 545 Irving Street
The InnerFog wine bar is now a restaurant called Hamilton Fog. The concept behind Hamilton Fog…everything on the menu is One Hamilton ($10 bill) per item or less…with the exception of a full bottle of wine:) Products are locally sourced and organic when at all possible. Our chefs, Rose Bobrick and Zack Leal are not trying to cook any one type of food style - they just want to create a home style cooking with imaginative ingredients that feel comfortable when eating. Some of the best memories are sitting around a large table with friends and family, This was the emphasis on the communal tables here at Hamilton Fog.
We are now open for lunch and the menu offers sandwiches and salads and for dinner California Tapas. All of our wine by-the-glass, large beers, house-made sandwiches, salads and tapas are $10 each…tax included! We will change our menu seasonally to offer the best produce throughout the year. Everything is made on-site. Currently Hamilton Fog is 21 and over, but the alcohol license may change in the near future so the whole family can enjoy. Additionally we will be holding a wine class on the first Saturday of every month from 12-2 pm, starting October 7, 2017 with Sommelier Cosmin. I look forward to seeing you at Hamilton Fog.

Western Relics, Irving at 15th Ave.
Western Relics was the passion project of Wilson Drozdowski and Sabrina Kay, an Outer Sunset couple with backgrounds in the art, punk, and DIY scenes, who don’t think you should have travel downtown to find culture. They named the store after the "Western" end of the city, where they wanted to locate their business. ("Relics" half-jokingly refers to their retro merchandise.) Sadly they will be missed!
