Fresh off a Michelin star and a three-star Bauer review, the Sons & Daughters duo of Teague Moriarty and Matt McNamara are ramping up a second project, a few blocks away from their restaurant. Set in the former Candy Darling space on Sutter and Jones, it’s going to be named Sweet Woodruff (after the herb) and will be a carry-out lunch spot, at least to start. Moriarty says to expect the same style and quality standards that they’ve had at Sons & Daughters.
The place is named for a favorite garnishing herb of chef-owners Teague Moriarty and Matt McNamara (their kitchen garden, by the way, has now doubled in size to accommodate both restaurants). Running the kitchen is Manresa alum Isaac Miller who's been working at Sons & Daughters over the last six months. Desserts are being done by S&D pastry chef Kevin Gravito.
This is the first go at a casual, quick-service business from talented, Michelin-starred young chefs Teague Moriarty and Matt McNamara—also the first time you'll be able to have their food at an every day price point. See the opening menu as passed on by Moriarty over the weekend. Bread, condiments and even the "Tapatio" is made in house. Manresa alum Isaac Miller will be the chef on site, ensuring all the Sons & Daughters' standards are met at this level.
