Samovar is excited to announce that the founder of Digg.com, Kevin Rose selected our new Hayes Valley location as one of his “Favorite Places” as part of Google Maps latest initiative.

This month, Google Maps launched a new international campaign pinpointing local celebrities’ favorite haunts, highlighting venues such as restaurants and clubs recommended by luminaries based in each chosen city (i.e. New York, London, SF, etc).

San Francisco features locations selected by such celebs as Gavin Newsom, Alice Waters, Grant Washburn, Tiffany Shlain and several others.

Thanks Kevin!
