Lazy Bear encapsulates the unique San Francisco dining experience. Started as a pop up in 2009 by Chef-owner David Barzelay in an underground venue, the concept became a brick-and-mortar in the Mission in 2015. Rather than the standard restaurant reservation model, Lazy Bear operates more as a dinner party with two 11-course seatings for 40 guests each evening. Big Rock invested in the brick-and-mortar transition in 2015.
