Everything, from the jewel-toned leather bar seats to the velvet curtains, suggests opulence with a decidedly jolly twist. But if the design doesn’t convince you, the presence of two bars might.
Sit at one when you arrive, likely during the first of two “Rocks & Rosé” happy hours. Order a dozen of one and a glass of the other while taking in the menu that’s filled with just everything. Beet blini with caviar and salmon, duck confit pot pie, that cioppino for two and a list of cocktails honoring Bay Area legends like Janis Joplin and Jack London.
Then there are the weekly specials to contend with like Thursday Friendsgivings, Saturday cornflake-crusted fried-chicken sandwiches (a favorite from Scott’s Market & Rye), dessert and, of course, brunch.
