Hogs and Rocks Together at Last

[NECNMIGR] 845369.jpg

Well look at the changes that have taken hold at the

Hog & Rocks

space since

we last spoke

. The

first ever

ham and oyster bar

in San Francisco

has turned out to be an 86-seat masculine boite, balancing candy-apple-colored chairs and cool slate walls in an


design. Chef partner

Scott Youkilis

has brought on

Ray England

as chef de cuisine and

Dave Esler

as partner...because you can never have too many of those. The classic cocktails on which

Tres Agaves' Eric Rubin

and GM

Christine D’Abrosca

consulted will comprise a refreshingly low price tag (still TBD), slapped on classics like the Vesper; made from gin, vodka and Lillet. Alcademics has

the full list

. And if you purchase a hurricane, $1 from the sale will be donated to the

Greater New Orleans Foundation's Gulf Coast Oil Spill Fund

. Not pictured here: a 16-seat outdoor patio to open mid-July.

The hog and the rocks won't be available until Sunday; but you can sink your teeth into the preliminary menu for now.
