A new restaurant, Rambler, is open at the Hotel Zeppelin in San Francisco.
Executive chef Robert Leva (Salt House, Redd, Auberge du Soleil, Calistoga Ranch) created a menu of Californian fare that leans Italian, according to SF Eater. Dishes like charred little gem salad, creamy chanterelle toast, and wood-fired oven pizzas and mains are on the menu. Bar manager Simone Mims (Rich Table, Foreign Cinema) is behind the cocktails, which are housemade and seasonal.
Designed by Lori Yeomans (Wayfare Tavern, Sammy Hagar’s El Paseo), the space is full of warm tones, leather seating, wood tables, and textured walls. There are two distinct space — the bar area and the dining room — that all in all seats 100 people. The bar area has a large, wraparound bar and tables with leather banquettes, while the dining room is full of flannel banquettes and vintage photography. There’s also a separate mini-bar in the dining room with four seats, called Zinc Bar for its zinc top.
