Part of One Off Hospitality Group

Pacific Standard Time is the first project from Underscore Hospitality (Chef Erling Wu-Bower and Joshua Tilden), in partnership with One Off Hospitality (Paul Kahan, Donnie Madia and Terry Alexander). The restaurant, as well as the food coming straight out of its two hearth ovens, draws from the authenticity and relaxed energy of California cooking, with all-day dishes ranging from whole-grain flatbread pizzas to coal-roasted vegetables, and a botanical, light-filled interior design to match.
