I recently got pretty lucky and had the chance to tag along with the hubs to a work event hosted by a good friend of ours at Naked Kitchen. Sounds a little questionable, I know, but it is actually one of the most genius concepts I have come across in San Francisco. The owner of Naked Kitchen owns a big beautiful classic Victorian home in the Mission District of the city. He has transformed the main floor of the home into the ideal space for hosting parties, especially when the parties revolve around spotlighting amazing food. There is a professional chef’s kitchen, back deck with heaters and nooks to lounge with a drink and a variety of seating areas to host both large groups and smaller intimate parties alike. Our group of about 12 people sat around the large kitchen island and watched as our chef for the night, Anthony, worked his magic in the kitchen. It could not have been more up my alley. We noshed on light apps and sipped drinks as he explained how he creates his menus based on what’s fresh at the markets that day and as we dug into each course he elegantly moved on to plating the next. The salad was one of the most gorgeous (and equally delicious) plates I have had in a long time and although I’m not a big sweets person the truffle waffle at the end smelled like a dessert dream come true. I’m chomping at the bit to make it back and am thrilled to know there are unique meals from local chefs and brunch events open to the public on a regular basis. I highly recommend this experience for all you Bay Area locals looking for a fun new experience.
