We have been tracking the transformation of Amante in North Beach into ~PETE’S~, and we’re happy to announce Pete Mrabe (Chubby Noodle, Don Pisto’s) is officially opening the bar this Thursday February 18th.
The space got quite the refresh, with new booths, surfaces, banquettes, and a new bar. It will continue its tradition as a popular place to watch sports, but it’s also a comfortable spot for a drink and a bite. He brought on Duggan McDonnell to consult on the cocktail menu; take a look here. You’ll see some classics, like the OG Martinez, the Boothby Manhattan, and of course a pisco punch (a true SF original); all drinks are $11. The beer and wine list also got a nice update, but still spans the low to the high, so don’t worry about things being too fancy.
As we previously noted, Mrabe has brought on Daniel Sudar (Fog City Diner, Betelnut) as chef. Dishes on the all-American menu include smoked wings, a blue cheese wedge salad, a housemade turkey potpie, popcorn shrimp, a double Kobe burger, and mac and cheese. There’s even a dessert menu, ranging from amaretto bread pudding to their peanut butter cup (take a peek at both on their Instagram).
Hours to start will be 5pm-2am, eventually expanding in a week to 10am-2am. (Mrabe hired three old-timer bartenders from the neighborhood to run the bar during the week in the daytime, love it.) 570 Green St. at Columbus.
