Sanraku is a nice Japanese restaurant in the Sony Metreon building in downtown San Francisco, which looks out onto Yerba Buena Gardens. The place is nicely appointed, with a beautiful location, great service, and solid sushi. I ate there once about nine years ago, and another time a couple years ago, where I held onto the chopstick wrapper, for this logo:
Another iconic abstraction, its proportions are pleasing, and I’ve always loved the idea of stacked lunch containers (soup/hot items on top, room-temp/cooler items below…and you can have a selection of hot and cold items in your packed lunch. See below for front and back (which has the prerequisite instructions on how to use chopsticks, and an unfortunate choice of a script typeface):
Tthere’s also something about the logotype when rendered in green that makes it look like it could have been made out of bent/cut lengths of bamboo, which I like.
Found: first got a quick meal at Sanraku while attending a conference in 2002. Remembered it and had dinner there in 2009, where I noticed the logo.
