The Salzburg

Location: San Francisco
Client: Lebua Jay Esopenko
Project Team:  8 inc
Mark Little - Principal in Charge

Erik Kramer - Design Lead


Given the success of Union Larder, our first project with husband and wife restauranteurs Jay Esopenko and Melissa Gugni, they came to us to design their next venture, The Salzburg.

The restaruant is designed to feel like a bit of Austria was dropped into San Francicsco’s North Beach neighborhood.  A variety of design details and motifs reminiscent of an apres-ski hut in the Alps, mixed with Jay’s impeccable wine selections and house made charcuterie make this space approachable and alluring.  Out back, a patio with fire pit help warm lingering visitors on cool, foggy San Francisco evenings.
