SFoodie was the first to note back in November that Charlie Palmer seemed to be working on a project at the Crescent Hotel. Inside Scoop got confirmation that he was in fact working with the developer City-Core to open a “chef-driven boutique hotel.” Fans of the Burritt Room in the Crescent Hotel are happy to know the historic bar will remain open and will be keeping its name. It is currently under head bartender Liam Gilmore.
Palmer is opening a brand-new restaurant concept in the hotel. Renovations began this year, and additional details have been released recently about the project in what is now the 79-room Mystic Hotel. The Charlie Palmer restaurant project will be the Burritt Tavern under executive chef Ashley Weaver (formerly of Aureole in New York and Charlie Palmer at Bloomingdale’s), who has been with the Charlie Palmer team for over five years. The menu is inspired by private clubs, with steaks and chops, and plenty of local and seasonal influences. The 125-seat room’s look will mirror that of the Burritt Room, a bit speakeasy-ish, with six walled-in and curtained booths. For now, the opening is slated for early spring.
417 Stockton St. at Sutter.
