April 2009 Store Treks: Contigo and Brown and Co.

For this month’s Store Trek section of the Noe Valley Voice newspaper, I wrote about Contigo, a little restaurant on Castro St. getting big hype, and Brown and Co., a real estate company on 24th St.

I was really taken with Contigo’s back patio area and the commitment Chef and Owner Brett Emerson shows toward sourcing from local farms and supporting sustainable and organic producers, but doing it with an international approach that brings food inspired by another country’s cuisine (i.e. Spain) into the conversation. Other perks? They stay open late on weeknights and offer rezzies for parties of 6 or more (important to me because I hate waiting for tables…)
