Shuttered since April, the restaurant at the W Hotel officially reopens today with its new persona, Trace. Above, take a virtual walk through Stanley Saitowitz's total interior redo. It's all inspired by one line in one of the late Ambrose Bierce's poems “This city is a point upon a map of fog.” Take a look at the captions for further explanation. Matching the SF inspiration of the interior, the food is totally SLO (sustainable, local, organic) too. Chef Paul Piscopo is working with local foragers and "celebrity organic food expert" Helge Hellberg, who's somehow managed to stay off the general radar until now. Take a look at all the new menus and fancy new "FARMED | CRAFTED | SHARED" tagline here. And do drop an early report in this jar when you have a moment.
