Now open at the Hotel Zetta is ~S&R LOUNGE~, the new hotel lobby bar we mentioned back in February. To recap: the cocktail menu and bar snacks come from Anna Weinberg, James Nicholas, and chef Jennifer Puccio (Marlowe, Park Tavern)—think pigs in a blanket and other American bites. There’s also a tech playroom upstairs, complete with a pool table, shuffleboard, gaming consoles, and other things to keep tech guys entertained. Next up is the restaurant, The Cavalier. 55 5th St. at Mission.
Was very sorry to hear that Ceri Smith’s ~ET AL~ on Polk Street has closed—her business partnership with Arnold Thoroughman is no longer (via Scoop). I had a chance to catch up with her, and while she is obviously disappointed, she has her sights now set on a couple of other projects. I’ll keep you posted on her plans. 2255 Polk St. at Green, 415-655-3155.
