As mentioned in tablehopper a couple weeks ago, Prather Ranch Meat Co. is opening ~THE AMERICAN EATERY~ in the Ferry Building—the opening date is this Friday December 16th. The retail shop and Eatery have moved across the hall and are opening in a new space.

Chef Erica Holland-Toll has created a meat-centric, seasonal, American menu focused on takeout dishes, including soups (beef and barley soup), salads (like one with roasted pork tenderloin, little gems, toasted walnuts, feta, and roasted beets with Dijon mustard vinaigrette), sandwiches (including pulled beef, pulled pork, meatballs, and roast beef), chili (with dry-aged Prather Ranch chuck, Rancho Gordo beans, sharp cheddar, scallions, and sour cream), sausages, stews, a variety of their delicious burgers, and a selection of side dishes, like tallow-fried french fries. Uh huh. Some breakfast items are also offered, like a sandwich with fried egg, cheddar cheese, and sausage patty on an Acme challah roll, and weekend-only specials.

Abueg Morris Architects designed the space, with wood paneling from an 1880s barn on Prather’s Bella Vista property, Heath tiles, concrete countertops, and blown glass light pendants. Hours are Mon-Sat 7am-7pm, Sun 9am-5pm. 1 Ferry Building, shop #33, 415-391-0420.
