This week, Whitewaller San Francisco launches for FOG Design + Art (January 11—14). To help guide you to the best spots in town—where you can eat, drink, see art, and relax at, we hear from a group of insiders. Next up, Jamie Alexander, the owner of Park Life Store and Gallery and Founder of the SF Art Book Fair.
WHERE TO EAT AND SIP
Pizzetta 21 is a little neighborhood Italian restaurant that seats about 12 people. It reminds me of the cozy neighborhood restaurants in Brooklyn. They make one of the best pizzas in the city and serve some great Italian rosé. It’s in the Richmond District between The Presidio and Golden Gate Park.
WHERE TO SEE ART
I’ve been spending time at the recently open Minnesota Street Project in the Dogpatch, a renovated industrial space that houses some of the best galleries in town. Altman Siegel Gallery, Anglim Gilbert Gallery, as well as the new McEvoy Foundation for the Arts.
WHERE TO HAVE FUN AND RELAX
I enjoy walking the secret trails from my place on Lake Street in the Richmond District to China Beach, just west of the Golden Gate Bridge. It’s a short 15-minute walk and you find yourself on a remote beach with dramatic views of the Golden Gate.
