Brian Fernando mastered French fine dining across 10 years at Le Papillon; he was chef de cuisine his last four years there. Now, he's combining modern French technique with flavor memories of his childhood and recipes from his Sri-Lankan father as chef/owner of Soma's 1601 Bar & Kitchen.
Evan Bloom and Leo Beckerman opened Wise Sons Jewish Delicatessen in the Mission to give San Francisco a dose of the deli culture we'd been missing. But where else do they go for borscht and bagels? Wise Sons is a tribute to Evan and Leo's common food heritage, so we spent an afternoon gathering up the tastes of their childhoods. We shopped for food staples and ate at go-to local joints that remind them of mealtime with their bubbes.
