Open as of yesterday is ~HARROW~, a rustic and petite Financial District lunch spot. Eater had the backstory on the owners: “former Tsar Nicolai Caviar exec chef Daniel Hemmingsson and wine industry person Jayne Droese, last seen working at the Ferry Plaza Wine Merchant.”
A look at the opening menu (with locally sourced, organic, and seasonal items) includes roasted chicken leg ($12.75), preserved lemon and sage rub, warm bread salad with Della Fattoria bread, frisée, pomegranate, and pan juices; slow-roasted pork sandwich ($9.75): belly, shoulder, and cracklings, apple-carrot slaw, cilantro, fresh jalapeño, pickled onions, and ground mustard on Della Fattoria ciabatta roll; a farmers’ market vegetarian sandwich ($9): Bellwether farms “ricotta” cheese, avocado, shaved radish, wild arugula, caramelized leeks, and green garlic aioli on Della Fattoria baguette; along with soup (like sunchoke and potato), mac and cheese, and a winter salad. All dressings, marinades, rubs, aiolis, pickled items, and flavored oils are made fresh in-house.
The owners applied for a beer and wine license, and once this kicks in (hopefully in a couple months), they will extend hours to offer small, shareable, tapas-style plates served alongside wine and beer (until 11pm). For now, Harrow is open Mon-Fri 11am-3pm. 357 Kearny St. at Pine, 415-793-0654.
