Yaron Milgrom and Jake des Voignes, the owners of Local's Corner, have read our minds.
The sophomore project from the duo behind Local: Mission Eatery nails it, morning, noon and night.
The corner space is well-suited to morning, when the sun shines through the windows, and freshly squeezed tangelo juice ($4) and soft-poached eggs with brioche soldiers ($5) ease your wake-up. The waffle ($10), its arrival heralded by a yeasty aroma, is a similarly fine way to begin a day.
Local's Corner is open straight through from breakfast until dinner, and oysters are a welcome constant. In the open kitchen--which, it bears mentioning, has no range--you'll see des Voignes opening the bivalves to order and removing specks of grit with a paintbrush.
Come 5 p.m., the menu becomes more seafood-centric: In addition to oysters, consider caviar service ($40 for ½ ounce of California osetra) or a delicate salad of Dungeness crab, orange supremes and crisp, fresh peas (pictured; $13).
Round out the selections from the sea with a thirst-quenching salad of Little Gem lettuces, nutty aged goat cheese, radishes and garlic confit ($8), and a white crock of pork rillettes to smear on toasts of house-made bread ($13).
