Congratulations to Schwartz and Architecture for their win of a 2019 James Beard Award for Outstanding Restaurant Design for El Pípila! We are thrilled for everyone involved in this worthwhile project.
Writing in the San Francisco Chronicle, Justin Phillips notes that “El Pípila’s win is a change of pace considering the last two San Francisco restaurants to top the category were Michelin-starred fine-dining establishments—In Situ in 2018 and Healdsburg’s Single Thread in 2017.”
We are proud of our design contributions to the success of El Pípila!
