San Francisco comes to Hudson Square at Pine & Polk, a newly opened food shop from Lindsay Weiss and Alyssa Golub, New Yorkers who met while working in San Francisco and named their store for two of that city’s streets. They’ve filled the shelves with a quirky assortment of food products they like, from producers who are often women and of Black and Asian heritage. There’s a collection of bitters, a selection of cheeses, freshly made sauces, tinned fish, granolas and condiments. Hidden behind a wall of chocolate bars, speakeasy-style, is an actual bar they call PS, or Pacific Standard (unrelated to the Brooklyn bar of the same name that closed in 2019), not open yet. The chef for the store and bar is Ali Ghriskey, who worked at Misi.
