This Thursday, we will feature the delights of two up-and-coming local businesses: The Broken Record and Humphry Slocombe.
The Broken Record is a bar in the Excelsior boasting a wall of whiskey (114 kinds), free air hockey, a free PBR night, and a new kitchen crew that raises the bar for dive bars: Ryan Ostler and Katharine Zacher, who have worked at Boulevard, Campton Place, Firefly, Range, Quince, Tinderbox, and Serpentine. Ryan and Katharine smoke their own meat and bake their own buns, producing the kind of food that merits a special trip. Check them out (1166 Geneva Ave, a few blocks East of Mission Street).
Humphry Slocombe is a sweet little ice cream shop that Jake Godby (former pastry chef of Coi) and Sean Vahey just opened in the Mission. We think it's the best ice cream in the city, and we're proud to offer Jake's smart and delicious flavors.
