Now open in Union Square in the Mystic Hotel is ~BURRITT TAVERN~ from chef-owner Charlie Palmer, his first restaurant in San Francisco. To recap a previous report on tablehopper, the Tavern is building on the film noir/speakeasy-ish vibe of the flanking historic Burritt Room bar—sure to be the coveted tables are the curtained booths in the 125-seat dining room.

Chef Ashley Weaver’s dinner menu can be viewed here, which includes starters to share (like cornmeal-crusted oysters), five kinds of salads (including a warm asparagus salad with a poached egg), and main dishes like a pork chop, three cuts of steak, and 36-hour lamb shoulder, along with rather safe choices like chicken breast and salmon ($26-$32). Dinner Sun-Thu 5:30pm-10pm, Fri-Sat 5:30pm-10:30pm, lunch coming soon. Burritt Room + Tavern, at Mystic Hotel, 417 Stockton St. at Sutter, 415-400-0561.
