Can't wait! Wishing you much success with this endeavor or perhaps I should say, mission?


Go Contigo, go!
We're all with you—cheering you along (even from Seattle:-)

We're simply speechless with anticipation. :)


Dude, I got a little weepy reading this. I've read SO many restaurant mission statements, and not one has been as eloquent or had as much humility and humanity as this one.


Beautiful, beautiful statement, Brett. Am so excited about this opening!


A fabulous mission statement Brett. Made me wish I had a neighbourhood restaurant just like Contigo.


Very, very cool.


As a Noe Valley resident, and huge fan of the Barcelona market & tapas scene, I'm highly anticipating your opening. I'll be there with bells on!

Good luck and much success!


You would open on a Tuesday, on a week when I'm out of town. Looking forward to visiting the following week -- I'd say "when you have all the kinks worked out", but it sounds like you're trying to get them worked out first!


What a wonderful philosphy, misson statement and culinary point of view...!
We are cheering you loudly from Chicago...hope that you hear our support all the way in SF...
much success and bon chance mon ami...hugs...


Wonderful mission statement. Best wishes for success and living your vision. My family and I will visit . . . I promise.

It's been wonderful to follow your progress and I look forward to seeing your success.


Another wonderful reason to visit SF!


Wonderful! I love Tapa's I grew up in Bracelona Spain...I will check it out when I'm visiting .
Thnaks for sharing:)

And you can visit me if I can visit you:)

I love your vision of what a restaurant should be. You hit the nail on the head. I too am a restaurant owner.


I'm coming your way this weekend, and I can't wait!!!


It sounds like there is an awesome team working together to make the best food and provide the whole package.
