Why the Impossible Burger at Stanford Court is Everything

Stanford Court Hotel’s new food and beverage venture with Seven Stills Brewery & Distillery has a visionary item on the menu: the Impossible Burger.

The Impossible Burger tastes, cooks and smells like meat, but it’s made from plants. It’s a burger for everyone, pleasing to both meat lovers and plant eaters. The burger was developed in 2016 by Bay Area company Impossible Foods, founded by Stanford University professor emeritus Pat Brown.

Brown created the plant-based patty as a means to positively modify the way humans consume food. The Impossible Burger founders report that the burger utilizes 87 percent fewer greenhouse gas emissions than its beef-based counterpart.

Aside from the ingenuity and environmental progressiveness of Impossible Foods, the burger simply tastes good. Enthusiasm for the #ImpossibleBurger is loud and clear on Instagram, where it’s currently the newest food fad in Hong Kong. At Seven Stills Nob Hill, we serve our Impossible Burger with Seven Stills India Pale Ale-braised mushrooms and onions on a rosemary and garlic focaccia bun. We think it’s impossibly tasty.

As is customary at Seven Stills Nob Hill, you can pair your burger with one of the craft whiskies or beers available on tap. If you’re not sure exactly what you’re looking for, enjoy a $15 craft beer flight that features the always-rotating brews concocted by Seven Stills.


Seven Stills Nob Hill is a restaurant, bar and lounge space that offers a totally new ambiance for a night out in San Francisco. Leather furnishings, steel and brass fixtures and an homage to “Bullitt” above the seductively-lit bar gives the space a fun yet sophisticated feel.

Dinner is served 4-10:30 pm daily and our bar and lounge is open 4-midnight. We hope you’ll join us for a meal, a handcrafted cocktail, or a craft beer at Seven Stills Nob Hill.
