The Mina Group is expanding once more in San Francisco with a members-only club and event space in the Ferry Building called Shack 15.
News of the project comes to SFist via LinkedIn, where a job listing just went up for an experienced general manager to lead the team for the private club. The only clues we have so far are tucked into the job listing, which says that Shack 15 will be "high volume," and provide breakfast, lunch, and dinner services.
Some Google searching finds that Mina may be pivoting on this Ferry Building space, with two job listings that have since been removed looking to staff a kitchen for a "New Scandinavian concept in the Ferry Building." It's also unclear where in the building this may be — I've reached out to his reps for more information.
Members-only clubs have been springing up around town in recent years, with the likes of the Modernist just a couple blocks from the Ferry Building offering high-end cocktails to a mostly tech-centric membership, and The Battery offering a spacious clubhouse for a more elite set who pay $2,400 per year to belong. Shack 15 sounds decidedly more food-heavy — though The Battery does have a full-service restaurant.
This would be Mina's fifth restaurant in San Francisco, not including the still-in-the-works Indie Superette in the Marina, in the former Real Food Co. space. In the last couple of years he's opened Trailblazer Tavern in Salesforce Tower, and International Smoke (along with Ayesha Curry) in the former RN74 space. He also owns his eponymous restaurant Michael Mina, and PABU/Ramen Bar at 101 California, as well as Bourbon Pub locations at SFO, Lake Tahoe, and Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, and dozens of restaurants now spread across 11 states.
SFist will update you as we learn more about the pending concept.
