Not only has La Cocina been the most important food organization in San Francisco, but amid a changing landscape, it might also prove to be the key for San Francisco to remain San Francisco.
— The San Francisco Chronicle
La Cocina gives the artisanal chef a place to get started, and is a catalyst for a new generation.
— Andrea Bell
In fact, without even knowing it, many San Franciscans have probably stumbled upon the restaurants that La Cocina has helped launch.
— Thrillist
La Cocina is an enterprise that gives you hope for San Francisco’s future as a city where culinary and economic diversity might yet thrive hand-in-hand.
