(Photos courtesy of TBD)I may live in the citiest city there is, but I have huge affection for all things country. Take, for instance, camping. One of the best vacations of my life was a camping road trip through Utah's national parks, where I pitched my own tent and ate under the stars. So when I saw images for the recently opened TBD, in San Francisco, I knew I had to share the restaurant's nostalgic approach to camp-friendly decor with Lonny readers.

Natural elements, including a trio of rustic antlers, evergreen branches, and tree trunks repurposed as a reception desk, evoke the woods without darkening the interior's bright atmosphere.

Even the grill is reminiscent of a campfire cook out. I may not be able to replicate this in my own home, but the cast-iron cookware? That I can do.
