The Twitter building has another ground-floor project open as of yesterday, Monday June 29th. It’s ~DIRTY WATER~, from former Press Club general manager Kristian Cosentino. (Commence confusion with Dirty Habit in 3, 2, 1…)

As reported on tablehopper last year, the larger space has a full bar, extensive wine list (with many wines available by the glass due to their Coravin system), beer brewed on-site, and food from chef Jarad Gallagher. Gallagher, who previously received a Michelin star during his tenure at Chez TJ, has crated a menu focused on “primal” dining, meaning large cuts of meats cooked over open flame and intended for sharing, served family-style, along with individual-sized portions; check out the menu here. Bone broth, check.

The cocktails are from Zachary Taylor, previously of Ziryab, and they’re trying to make sure there’s something for everyone. Cocktails include the 140 Characters (get it?) with Zu vodka, Ancho Reyes, lime, and egg white, or the King of the Carrot Flowers, with Hendrick’s gin, carrot, ginger, verjus, dry vermouth, kummel, and absinthe. There are more than 52 beers on tap, including Chimay red, white, and blue, and three beers brewed on-site. As for the wine, there are more than 100 options available by the glass. Because they’re using the Coravin system, they’re able to pour that many selections without worrying about bottles deteriorating.

The industrial space was designed by Arcsine, and it’s decidedly masculine, with 1970s-style amber glass, leather couches and banquettes, and lots of wood. Hours are Mon-Sat 11am-1am, Sun 10am-10pm. 1355 Market St. at 9th St., 415-792-5108.
