Open as of this morning is ~THE GROVE HAYES VALLEY~, right on the corner of Franklin and Hayes. Yup, it’s your new place for meetings, meals, and more. A unique addition to this 110-seat location will be a variety of specials available after 4pm, like seared skirt steak ($12.50), meatballs ($11.50), and a roasted vegetable plate ($10.75); all created by executive chef Jeffrey Saad, who is overseeing the menu at all The Grove locations. This location will also feature coffee from Verve, with the baristas receiving training at the Verve facility.
As for the décor, designer Anna Veyna Zankel has integrated a variety of furnishings to fuel the eclectic-reclaimed look, like a seahorse bench from the Waldorf Astoria in New York, Moroccan burnt-orange leather fireside chairs, a “pavilion” made from Utah timbers, a stone fireplace, wood-topped stone benches, Caribbean-colored pillows, and iconic Grove white oak chairs. Wi-Fi should be up and running in about a week. There will also be 35 outdoor seats with heating very soon. The Grove will open Mon-Fri at 7am, and at 8am on the weekends, staying open until 11pm or 12am. 301 Hayes St. at Franklin, 415-624-3953.
