The new restaurant space is located in the South of Market district of San Francisco, near the W Hotel and directly adjacent to the future expansion of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. The location is an existing three story building.
The concept of this vegan restaurant is based on the Three Jewels of Buddhism which are the three beliefs that Buddhists take refuge in, and look forward for guidance, in the process known as taking refuge. The first sphere within the space represents Buddha, the enlightened one; the ideal or highest spiritual potential that exists within all being. The second sphere represents dharma, the teaching; the teachings of the Buddha that lead to the path to enlightenment, and the last sphere represents the community; the community of those who have attained enlightenment, who may help a practicing Buddhist to do the same.
