After seventeen years in SF, Chuck Rosenthal fell in love with Hudson and decided to buy the building that now occupies Valley Variety. (He lives on the third floor.) Here, he curates a lifestyle shop, which features Arita porcelain, Normann Copenhagen pendants, Bensen seating, and much more. It’s the kind of spot you’ll wander into, think you don’t need another thing, and wind up with, say, a set of Scandinavian spice grinders. A bonus: They host regular (and private) cooking demonstrations with local and visiting chefs, covering topics like family-centric cooking, Korean BBQ, and even a knish night.
