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