Today we get news of a cozy new spot coming to a former Chinese restaurant in the Jackson Square/Chinatown vicinity from Hi Neighbor, the newly formed restaurant group that's behind Fat Angel and Stones Throw. It's called Trestle, and per their reps it will serve "elevated comfort cuisine" in a prix fixe format, with three courses for a reasonable $35, and additional courses for $10 each.
Trestle is taking shape at 531 Jackson Street, formerly Great Hunan, and the chef is Jason Halverson, the same executive chef at the successful Stones Throw which was, itself, a quick overhaul of the former Luella. Also in the mix are partners Ryan Cole, Jason Kirmse, Cyrick Hia, and Tai Ricci, with Cole and Ricci both being Michael Mina alums.
The space will seat 49 people and is right on Columbus Avenue at the nexus of North Beach, Chinatown, the Financial District, and Jackson Square.
They're planning to serve dinner seven nights a week, and be open by March, but the menu is still under wraps. Says Cole, "Chef’s composed yet playful dishes will be interpretations of classic comfort foods you might make at home, but they’ll be elevated to the next level."
We'll update you as we learn more closer to the opening.
