Hogs and Rocks Together at Last



    Hogs and Rocks Together at Last

    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.
