Daniel Patterson Will Open a Restaurant Inside New Artist Haven Minnesota Street Project

The upcoming restaurant from Daniel Patterson will serve visitors to the gallery as well as the local artists’ community

San Francisco’s Daniel Patterson, the acclaimed chef behind the two-Michelin starred restaurant Coi, is set to open a restaurant and café within San Francisco’s Minnesota Street Project, an artists’ gallery space opening later this week.

Patterson, who also launched the first location of LocoL, his sustainable and community-oriented fast food project with Los Angeles chef Roy Choi earlier this year, will design a restaurant for gallery-goers and artists alike.

The chef told the San Francisco Chronicle that although he has “a million ideas” for the restaurant’s concept, he hasn’t settled on one just yet.

“We’re part of the larger whole,” Patterson said. “That’s our goal — to be as positive a contributor as possible to this really amazing project.” Both the café and restaurant are scheduled to open in the fall.

Later this year, LocoL will expand to Oakland and San Francisco, with more locations to follow. Last summer, Patterson stepped down as the executive chef of Coi, his fine-dining restaurant of nearly a decade, in order to become further involved with LocoL and to spend more time with his family.
