More details have been released about Charlie Palmer’s project in the former Crescent Hotel, now the Mystic Hotel. The 79-room hotel holds the Burritt Room, which will be keeping its name and is under head bartender Liam Gilmore. As for the afore-mentioned restaurant project, it will be the ~BURRITT TAVERN~ under executive chef Ashley Weaver (formerly of Aureole in New York and Charlie Palmer at Bloomingdale’s), who has been with the Charlie Palmer team for over five years. The menu is inspired by private clubs, with steaks and chops, and plenty of local and seasonal influences. The 125-seat room’s look will mirror that of the Burritt Room, a bit speakeasy-ish, with six walled-in and curtained booths. For now, the opening is slated for early spring. 417 Stockton St. at Sutter.
