The Claremont Hotel, Club & Spa property renovation means the restaurant (formerly Jordan’s Restaurant) has been completely redesigned as well. San Francisco-based Ziv Davis Design and Architecture Studio created a look for ~MERITAGE AT THE CLAREMONT~ that is both vintage and modern, and the main dining room has a wall of windows with an incredible view of the San Francisco Bay. The menu features California cuisine with local ingredients, and is under the direction of executive chef Josh Thomsen (Little Nell Hotel in Colorado, The Hotel Bel Air in Los Angeles, The French Laundry, and The Lodge at Pebble Beach). The menu is divided into two pages, a white wine page and a red wine page, each listing three categories of wines: sparklers, light whites, full bodied whites; and fruity reds, spicy earthy reds, and robust reds. Within each are three wine selections and three dishes paired to reflect the wine characteristics of that category. All dishes are available in either small or large plates, and the wines are in half or full pours. There is also a bar menu available at the mahogany bar, plus breakfast and weekend brunch (peek at all the menus here).
