Urban Tavern represents a new option for casually modern dining right off the corner of O’Farrell and Mason streets, located in the nexus of Union Square and The Tenderloin. Opening on October 30, 2016, the new restaurant will be serving dinner from 5:00-10:00 p.m., with the bar open until 11:00 p.m.
Featuring a full menu of locally-inspired cuisine, Urban Tavern has the distinctive personality of a metropolitan gastro pub, which highlights 50 wines within 50 miles, Bay Area beers and indigenous spirits.
A reflection of San Francisco’s bounty of seasonal ingredients, the diverse menu highlights premium products with a local flair, including Candied Pork Belly, Ahi-Salmon Hamachi Poke, Devil Fried Duck Eggs, Wild Mushrooms and Blackened Cauliflower, to name a few house specialties.
As the new Executive Chef for Urban Tavern, Mike Raub has an extensive background in culinary arts, most recently working for the Thomas Keller Restaurant Group, St. Regis Hotel and neighboring Nikko Hotel. An avid cyclist, Raub joined fellow chefs from around the world to bike 300 miles in three days in support of No Kids Go Hungry in California Schools.
In addition to the new Urban Tavern, Hilton San Francisco Union Square recently opened the Cityscape San Francisco Lounge, located on the hotel’s 46th floor. Now open to the public, the viewing lounge will welcome guests from 5:00 p.m. to midnight every day of the week. Featuring breathtaking, 360-degree panoramic views of the entire Bay Area and San Francisco’s most iconic landmarks, Cityscape offers small plates and appetizers, signature cocktails, wines by the glass, a variety of beers on tap, fine spirits and the best, most coveted viewing platform in the city. Designed as one of the top “must see” attractions in San Francisco, Cityscape is the quintessential destination for those that want to experience the city’s most dynamic views and enjoy the “lay of the land” as guests are treated to sights that can only be seen from the vantage point of the Hilton San Francisco Union Square’s tower one.
