A new project is in the works from Rachel Sillcocks (previously Range, Piccino) and Kristina Compton (Avery, Atelier Crenn, Range), HILDA AND JESSE, an “all-day breakfast restaurant and neighborhood hangout,” with an all-day menu that will go into late afternoon. Ends up they are (fellow) breakfast obsessives, and are working on opening a place in San Francisco (they’re scouting locations).
They’re also presently seeking investors, and in the meantime, are hosting some pop-ups, starting with their first one on Thursday April 11th at Robberbaron (2032 Polk St. at Broadway). It will run from 6pm to 10pm, and they’ll be serving two Latvian-style, rolled pancakes (as they say, “think ‘Hot Pocket’ but way tastier!”), a savory one and sweet one, $9 each. Swing by, get a glass of wine, and have some pancakes.
The next pop-up will be on April 22nd, at Nightbird. They’re going to be featuring a fun tasting menu brunch when they open Hilda and Jesse, which they’ll be playing around with at their second pop-up (four courses for $45). Look for playful takes on comfortable classics, and also dishes inspired from their family backgrounds (look for a lot of Latvian and Eastern European influences). Keep track of future pop-up details at @hildaandjessesf.
