The Tip Post
Boulevard, Martini House, Farallon, Fog City Diner, Jardinière, Waterbar, Epic Roasthouse. They are the best of the best of San Francisco’s great restaurants. And they were all developed, designed and are co-owned by Pat Kuleto.
In addition, solely as designer, Pat has created more than 160 other restaurants around the country — including the Hard Rock Cafe Las Vegas. He is the padrone of the 761-acre Kuleto Estate Family Winery in Napa and proprietor of Nick’s Cove, the restaurant and hotel he restored on Tomales Bay. He has been named Best Restaurant Designer by Bon Appetit and honored as a Top 100 Innovator in Time. His Boulevard has been Zagat’s number one San Francisco restaurant for seven years in a row.
And now, to top off his illustrious career, he will be guest of honor at the Toast of the Tip in D/C’s private penthouse lounge, where he will regale and instruct mere mortals amid a feast of fine wine and hors d’oeuvres.
