The Proper Hotel, which will be making its debut at Seventh and Market this August, has just announced the hiring of chef Jason Franey to oversee the four restaurants at the property including the much anticipated new rooftop bar. We had heard earlier this year that the new SF hotel was planning to have three "chef-driven" restaurants in its ground floor spaces, and while we don't yet have details on their concepts or names, you can expect at least one is going to be pretty high-end with Franey at the helm.

Inside Scoop breaks the news of the hire, noting that Franey is coming off of a 3.5-star Bauer review for his work at Restaurant 1833 in Monterey, which followed stints at New York's Eleven Madison Park which has three Michelin stars and Seattle's Canlis.
They also report that Josh Harris and Morgan Schick of The Bon Vivants, two of the guys behind Trick Dog, have been brought on to oversee the cocktail side of things.
The hotel's nascent website reveals that in addition to an "upscale destination eatery," there will be an all-day lobby restaurant, as well as a café. The rooftop bar is described as an "indoor/outdoor bar and lounge "complete with fire pits and panoramic views of the city skyline."
The Proper Hotel is a new venture from Proper Hospitality, the group behind the Avalon Hotel boutique chain from Brad Korzen, CEO, the original CEO/founder of the Viceroy Hotel Group. Proper Hotel will boast interior design by acclaimed designer Kelly Wearstler (who's also Korzen's wife), and the Scoop says rooms will run around $400 per night.
