What does a ramen shop, a geodesic-shaped retail store, a pop-up night market in a noodle factory, and a homebrew supply store have in common? This guy Robert Patterson.
In the past few years, he has quietly launched some of the city's most noteworthy spots. From Ken Ken Ramen, to Revolver SF to The Voyager Shop, to Black Sands Beer... honestly if you chuck a rock in SF you'll probably hit something he created. Though his projects vary, the core themes stay the same: quality, craft and thoughtful style.
