It’s an old story.
Boy meets girl. Boy and girl get married. Boy and girl go to the kitchen and make sweet, sweet... food. Boy
and girl open pitch-perfect date spot in Hayes Valley. The end.
Okay, it’s a new story. In fact, it’s this story...
Presenting Rich Table
, a handsome new eatery from a husband-and-wife duo (that would be the
namesake Riches), slated to open Thursday in Hayes Valley.
There’s a real breezy farmhouse vibe
happening here. You’ve got your rugged walls lined with wood
salvaged from an old sawdust mill. Your light fixtures crafted from gas pipes. Your exposed steel beam
holding everything together.
If you’re here with a date (hint: come here with a date), hit one of the cocktail tables next to the bar
by the window and summon drinks like the peaches/rye Barn Wood
or the mezcal/ginger Big
. If you’re here with a group (hint: come back with a group), go for the booth tucked in the
back. And if you’re up for anything (hint: ... okay, you get the idea), try one of the two communal tables
in the center and watch the chefs work their magic.
Said magic: tomato-braised oxtail with charred octopus
, executed with the precision you’d expect from
Michael Mina/Coi vets. Oh, and a six-course tasting menu with things like caviar.
And, like, five other things.
