Be part of opening an exciting restaurant in San Francisco where friends and family gather to enjoy food that nourishes the soul!

www.myriadsf.com

Welcome to our Kickstarter Campaign!

I’m Trish Tracey. I have been a professional chef for over 25 years – the last 17 in San Francisco. Being a chef is what I do and what I love and being a chef in San Francisco has always felt like a dream come true. I have opened and operated many restaurants over the years. Momo's, Roti and Thirsty Bear Brewing Company in San francisco to name a few.

Now I am ready to open and operate Myriad Gastro Pub in the city that I love. From the quality produce to the creative culture, this is a city that loves its restaurants. Myriad will be at the heart of that unique San Francisco dining culture. It will be a comfortable gathering place where friends and family can come together and enjoy food to nourish the soul.

What is our restaurant concept?

Myriad is a Gastro Pub. Gastropub or gastrolounge refers to a bar and restaurant that serves elevated food and beverages in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Myriad Gastro Pub will be located in the SOMA district of San Francisco. Myriad- Gastro Pub will be a neighborhood gathering place featuring: globally inspired, thoughtfully sourced San Francisco cuisine.

We’ll be offering a menu of simply prepared, boldly flavored seasonal dishes, paired with a creative wine list, craft beers and inspired cocktails. I believe in creating an environment where combining the best ingredients, served by knowledgeable staff in a cozy atmosphere results in our customers wanting to come back for more.

We are in the funding phase for Myriad Gastro Pub with the goal of opening our doors this Fall. We are here to raise $60,000. You can help in two ways:

First: Make a financial pledge. No amount is too large or too small. Check out the fun rewards we’re offering!

Second: Share my story by sharing this page with everyone you know who would like to be a part of something amazing and delicious

What is Kickstarter?

Kickstarter is a new way to fund creative projects through "Crowd Funding". If you're not sure how it works, take a look here, here and here. Essentially, you pledge funds to help us develop and open Myriad Gastro Pub and we give you cool stuff in return. Rewards! See over there on the right?

When we reach our goal of $60,000, you get cool rewards and we get the financial support we need to complete our project. If we don't reach the goal, no money is collected and no cool stuff gets sent. Surpassing our financial goal would be great -- so keep pledging if you want more rewards!

Pledge $50 or more and get one of these super cool t-shirts.

How will the money be used?

Money raised through Kickstarter will primarily be used to purchase equipment and to complete a remodel. Help us bring Myriad Gastro Pub to the SOMA district by supporting our project today. We love the concept of opening Myriad Gastro Pub by having our friends, family, coworkers, acquaintances, and local food lovers involved through a collaborative effort.  We look forward to thanking you personally! If you've ever thought about “owning a restaurant someday”... now is your chance to be a part of that dream!

Together we can make the dream of Myriad Gastro Pub a reality.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

There are hurdles that any restaurant opening in San Francisco has to clear: the city requires drawings, permits, and licenses that need to be approved for construction and development to take place.

To navigate the regulations, we are working with some of the most respected compliance specialists in San Francisco. Our strong relationships with both architects and contractors who are experienced in the San Francisco food scene will help us anticipate and manage our largest challenges.

My previous experience in opening restaurants in San Francisco and the Bay Area will be an asset during the opening process that will help to us to navigate the process smoothly.
