Hillside Supper Club started about a year ago as a pop-up restaurant brought to you by chef/owners Jonathan Sutton and Tony Ferrari. We are a neighborhood restaurant in San Francisco next to Precita Park surrounded by the community of Bernal Heights. Our Supper Club is a social, casual gathering of people who enjoy eating and drinking, love good food, and like to meet new friends. Our vision is to produce simple, locally sourced, market driven, seasonal food, using, of course, proper cooking techniques. We have always dreamed of having our own dining establishment, and now along with your support and the community's involvement, our dream is finally close to being realized!
By this fall, we plan to be open six nights a week for dinner, self-service lunch (to include picnics in Precita Park), and brunch on Saturdays and Sundays. In addition, we will hold special dinners/classes with local farmers, artisans, wine makers, and butchers. We will stay involved with Slow Food and other local food communities to share food and nutritional education with others, especially the next generation of children. Once a month we plan to bring back an original 50's "supper club" where we encourage guests to dress the part, with live bands and singers performing. We want to host "HSC movie in the park" events in Precita Park that will feature classic films along with hot beverages and popcorn.
This is an ambitious project that takes lots of thought, money, passion, experience and time. We have invested so much already, thanks to the help of our family and friends. By developing this restaurant we will contribute to building the unique and enjoyable neighborhood of Bernal Heights for both locals and visitors. Some of our business neighbors include Harvest Hills, Precita Park Cafe, and Charlie's Place (which is opening a wine and beer lounge very soon too).
We need to raise $200,000 to open our restaurant this fall. The goal of $25,000 received from this campaign will allow us the initial capital to begin a small remodel and properly equip the kitchen and bar. The goal of $25,000 is an all-or-nothing proposition; if we don’t reach this goal, we won’t receive any of the money. But on the other hand, if we do reach or, better, exceed the goal, you all get cool rewards, and we can get started with the remodel. So, be a part of the dream! If only 250 people pledge $100, we will reach our goal – it's that easy! And of course if you want more cool prizes, keep pledging – we could use the extra funds towards the final $200,000
