We found a great new place just down the street from us. It’s called Triptych. They’re open for lunch and dinner, and offer brunch on weekends in this great space behind the restaurant. The inside is corrugated metal walls, with flowing fabric from the ceiling, and interesting original artwork from local artists. It’s very cool.
The food is good, but the menu is a little limited for my taste. It’s definitely worth checking out if you live in the area. Triptych is south of market (soma), at 1155 Folsom St (near 7th). Here’s a map, and some reviews.
