As one of the most powerful art dealers in the world, Larry Gagosian is merely adding another gallery to his global empire with the opening of his space in the historic Crown Point Press building, just around the corner from the newly renovated San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. The 4,500-square-foot gallery, designed by L.A.-based wHY Architecture’s Kalaput Yantrasast, will display the work of renowned artists such as Cy Twombly, Roy Lichtenstein, Richard Serra and Jasper Johns. According to director Anna Gavazzi Asseily (a transplant from Gagosian London), the gallery will open four shows per year. 657 Howard Street; gagosian.com

“Domesticity has been left in the dust, as more and more millennials spend most of their time at the office,” says Liz Curtis, the founder of the Table + Teaspoon website and app, a home-entertaining version of Rent the Runway. Curtis, 33, a Bay Area native, launched T+T late last year, followed this summer by her new SoMa district showroom and office. Conceived as an entertaining and cooking blog in 2009, T+T soon evolved into an eventplanning and private catering firm. Curtis’ retail component takes home entertaining up a few notches with its four-step process for ordering the hottest table settings. And the best part: You don’t have to do the dishes—just repack everything and send it back. “I curate the perfect dinner party based on your taste, and deliver it to your door with step-by-step instructions,” she explains. tableandteaspoon.com
