INSPIRATION FROM THE PAST OF PUBLISHING

The décor of MKT takes inspiration from San Francisco’s legendary publishing history, with such newspapers as the Californian and the California Alta. In fact, the original Hearst Building shares this very location at the corner of Market Street and 3rd. 

Featuring a retro urban-chic style, MKT evokes the golden age of publishing with brushed brass detailing, dark oak floors, vinyl coverings, and accents of ink bottles and type-setting block letters – harkening back to old printing presses.

"I feel like when you’re a cook or a chef for so long, we develop this telekinetic connection between our minds and our palate. When we get in our zone, the two just speak to each other."
