Marking the near completion of the hotel's multi-phased $70 million dollar renovation, Grand Hyatt San Francisco is introducing OneUP Restaurant & Lounge, a CCS Architecture-designed open kitchen restaurant and upscale bar, slated to open on Nov. 14, 2012. Grand Hyatt San Francisco will also provide a cuisine preview with the launch the city's first hotel-operated food truck, delivering a sampling of OneUP's Northern California-influenced, American bistro cuisine across the city.

 

"The launch of OneUP Restaurant & Lounge, along with our Grand Hyatt San Francisco food truck signals the exciting culmination of our property's extensive $70 million dollar transformation which will infuse a new energy into Union Square," said David Nadelman, general manager of Grand Hyatt San Francisco. "We've transformed the property from top to bottom, infusing all 660 guestrooms, lobby, front drive, and meeting space with a stylish, modern interpretation of San Francisco. Our new culinary campaign completes the vision by embracing the vibrant cuisine of the Bay Area and literally putting it on the plate for our guests to enjoy."

 

OneUP Restaurant & Lounge will be tapping into fresh products from local and regional purveyors, and signature dishes may include: Marin Sun Farms Lamb Bourguignon with house-made pappardelle, hedgehog mushrooms, pearl onions, parsnips and lemon-mint pistou; and Milk Poached Niman Ranch Pork and Beans in white bean cassoulet with crispy shallots, pickled apple and arugula.

 

In the lounge, guests can share items like Niman Ranch Ham Croque Monsieur Sliders with black truffle Mornay and enjoy hand-crafted cocktails utilizing local, seasonal ingredients created by San Francisco mixologist Scott Beattie. In addition, Hyatt is working with local distillery Charbay to offer its very own OneUP Whiskey. The 22-month-old, 138-proof whiskey will be served in OneUP-branded custom-made flasks.

 

Grand Hyatt San Francisco's new food truck will be the first hotel-branded outfit of its kind in San Francisco. Joining the ranks of the city's burgeoning food truck culture, the Grand Hyatt's mobile restaurant will offer city residents a sneak peek of OneUP dishes in neighborhoods around town.
