Ever since Suno’s wildly patterned collection debuted in 2008, designers Max Osterweis and Erin Beatty have had us smitten. In addition to the line's utterly drool-worthy Kenyan prints mixed and matched together in the most inventive ways, the fact that Osterweis is a San Francisco native just deepens our fashion crush. While the designer, who lived in Pac Heights for 17 years before moving to New York for college, admits he doesn’t get back to the Bay as often as he’d like, he still considers it “home.” Below, he dishes on his must-hit list for those annual Thanksgiving trips.1. Swan's Oyster Depot: "No trip to San Francisco is complete for me without a visit to Swan's for oysters and dungeness crab."
1517 Polk Street (between California and Sacramento streets); 415-673-1101.
2. Pancho Villa Taqueria and Gordo Taqueria: "These are my two childhood favorite burrito joints. When I'm home I usually visit one or the other, and sometimes both."
3071 16th Street (between Valencia and Mission streets); 415-864-8840.
5450 Geary Boulevard (between 18th and 19th avenues); 415-668-8226.
3. The Castro Theatre: "Admittedly, I haven't been in a while, but it was my favorite place to see movies 19 years ago. I can't imagine that it's changed."
429 Castro Street (between 17th and 18th streets); 415-621-6120.
4. Mt. Tam: "I love this place for a run. I go from Stinson Beach up to Pantoll, and then along the coastal trail, and eventually back down to the beach. I ran marathons before my life in fashion!"
801 Panoramic Highway, Mill Valley; 415-388-2070.
5. Marin Sun Farms: "This spot in Point Reyes Station is a more recent discovery for me. It has the best burger in the Bay Area. It's simple and damn good."
10905 Highway 1; 415-663-8997.
