Restaurant Visit: The Corner in San Francisco

The Corner in San Francisco, named for its location at the intersection of Mission and 18th Streets, drew our attention instantly with its matte black exterior, featuring painted-over Chinese characters, which pays homage to its former incarnation as an Asian grocery. Designed by Blythe Friedmann, the interior has a slight goth edge, mixing Edgar Allen Poe-ish wallpaper, exposed brick, fluted metal pendants, and vintage finds. Go to SFoodie for more information.
