Watch a Day in the Life of Defina Restaurant
In its annual video holiday card (you may remember the one last year, with the staff food fight in Dolores Park), Delfina has used a combo of time-lapse and real-time footage to show a day in the life of the restaurant. The magic starts at 4 a.m., when the pasta is made while the city sleeps. Then deliveries arrive, firewood is stocked, onions are chopped, herbs are prepared, pizza dough is measured and formed, desserts are prepared, wine is tasted, tables are set -- and that's all before service.
Go, watch. It's a mesmerizing look at the world that goes into a restaurant every single day.
