Pat Kuleto


As a restaurateur, vintner and gardener, I've grown from the medium of design to embrace the wonderful world of food and wine. In that milieu, I do what I love, and I create environments that excite me. I don't believe people fall in love with formulas, they fall in love with inspiration and originality. Savoring a perfect meal should be more than a little like falling in love."

Pat Kuleto's detailed and intimate design has made the interior at BOULEVARD an American restaurant classic. Co-owner of Boulevard with Nancy Oakes, Pat Kuleto's inspired touch is born also of a love of food and wine, and the sense of place that a restaurant must have to bring out what is best at each table. In addition to his partnership with Nancy Oakes, Pat Kuleto's signature touch in design brings to life the culinary experience in many of San Francisco's and America's best restaurants. Pat has won and been honored for his exceptional work, including Bon Appetit's Food and Entertaining Award for Best Design, as well as recognition with James Beard Foundation
