Here’s the latest on what is replacing The Dining Room at The Ritz-Carlton, San Francisco: the restaurant will be ~PARALLEL 37~, as in the latitude that crosses near the Bay Area and wine country. Chef Ron Siegel’s menu of contemporary American cuisine will be all about the local ingredient scene, and even the wine program will be focused on regional California wines.
EDG Interior Architecture + Design is behind the new sleek and modern look, and as mentioned previously, a big addition will be a bar and lounge with room for 46. The bar/lounge will include communal table seating, and in the main dining room, there will be a chef’s table that will open off the kitchen, and a semi-private room for small parties.
Want to see how it’s all going to look? tablehopper has an exclusive first look at the floor plan of the restaurant. Elements include glass wall treatments, a dramatic glass entranceway from the lobby, natural materials, and a glowing glass graphic panel of California oaks. The tablecloths will be gone, replaced by free-edge wood tables and plaid-embossed leather seating. Yup, it’s going to be a totally different and chintz-free scene. The opening is currently planned for December. Stand by for a menu and more in coming weeks.
