Emily Nathan captures the San Francisco food collective OPENrestaurant for the March/April issue of Vogue Australia Living. The project was started by Stacie Pierce, Jerome Waag, and Sam White, all part of the Chez Panisse restaurant staff. It mixes the avant garde art scene with the organic and sustainable food culture of the Bay Area. OPENrestaurant explores issues around food and society by turning the restaurant into an artistic medium and making it available to cooks, farmers, artists, and activists. The collective meets one night every few months to enjoy local food and to discuss a specific issue.
