Text description provided by the architects. Mississippi is a soul food restaurant in the Fillmore Jazz District of San Francisco.
Like the river, a single table meanders through the space – here everyone sits around and eats as a family. Oxbows and curves allow parties to cluster.
Above the table is an echo of brass pipes that cast light and deflect sound. One wall is the bar, the other an open kitchen with seating for diners to watch the theatre of cooking.
The table spills out into a small outdoor court with sidewalk views.
Within atmosphere is clubby and lush.
