The Sycamore Kitchen Cards!

So excited to see the Sycamore Kitchen business card I designed printed! It’s awesome to see the logo on the signage and packaging throughout the restaurant as well.

I worked with Karen Hatfield to develop a new brand identity and business cards for her latest restaurant concept – The Sycamore Kitchen. It’s a casual restaurant with an emphasis on the bakery. Please, if you’re in Los Angeles, go check out their butter cup and berry & cream cookie. They’re to die for!

143 S La Brea Ave
Los Angeles, CA 90036

My main man, LA times food critic, Jonathan Gold recently did a review on it: Counter Intelligence: Casual crazy vibe at Sycamore Kitchen

Porchetta Sandwich from Roli Roti

Roli Roti at the SF Ferry Building farmers’ Market

These Porchetta Sandwiches are so good. They’re crispy, fatty, and so finger-lickingly good. Don’t be discouraged by the long line, it moves fast and is definitely worth it.

Please go get some if you’re in the Bay Area. Schedule:

Ado at Venice

We just had a great meal at Ado in Venice. They do fresh homemade pastas everyday and it certainly shows. The pasta with truffle butter was out of this world. Complex and rich flavors all work together to form the perfect pasta dish. Yum!

Highly recommended.

We just walked in and got seated right away. Service was also excellent. The chef was cheerful and proud of his food an ingredients. Just the way I like it!


Food Map Updated!

I just updated the food map with some new items. I’m hoping to do a mini-writeup on some of them for a review. Also talk about what to order and all. 😉 Hopefully it’ll be helpful!

Here it is!


Food type – poutine @ animal
