Sneak Peek: Double Standard San Diego
With full remodel in swing, LID interiors has hand selected random No. 1 California redwoods for the library wall and 15-year Italian lime plastered finishes to surround the used Chicago brick which has been installed by Old World Artisans in the dining areas. Look for a custom “Campari" bar with hand-made fixtures from designed Ingo Mauer to complement the vast boutique wine selection. Custom banquettes are being fabricated in a yellow hand-stitched leather - think Restoration Hardware meets Phillipe Starck at 6th and G in Downtown SD! The glamorous food and interior/exterior design has been conceived to excite all of the five senses.
A 'Faema Legend E-61" vintage espresso machine is due to arrive any day to compliment Double Standard’s after-sips. A recent shipment from Naples, Italy, also included the specialized dough mixing machine which delicately fluffs the proprietary starter dough very lightly as it mixes with Napa Valley’s premier first-press olive oil and Sicilian sea salts. Final Health inspections are scheduled for this month’s end and the sounds and scents of the kitchen will begin to hum!
Below is a "secret shot" of the craftsman installing the California Redwoods in the South library wall.

I am pursuing a JD at Harvard Law School, where I am a member of Harvard’s Journal on Legislation and Journal of Sports and Entertainment Law. Prior to attending law school, I graduated summa cum laude from Dartmouth College with High Honors in History. There, I competed on the Policy Debate team and was the Managing Editor of The Dartmouth Independent. Teaching, mentoring, and coaching have continued to be passions of mine after my time working as a high school debate coach. Throughout college until the present, I have worked with several college and professional school applicants to refine their applications and get into the top choice schools. My favorite part of the job is to watch students grow intellectually and personally throughout the process. I am proud to call many of my advisees lifelong friends. In my free time, I enjoy basketball, soccer, and fitness. My other passion is food, and if there is a Chipotle nearby, you’re likely to find me there at least twice a day. Fortunately, those two hobbies should balance each other out!
