Magnolia Makes Chef Official, Releases New Menu

New, 3 comments

The Haight: Since Brandon Jew left his post at Magnolia back in December, sous chef Ronnie New has been running the kitchen, and now owner Dave McLean has made the executive chef title official at his Haight Street institution. Ronnie New has notables like Le Petite Robert, Bar Crudo, and Range on his resume, and according to the announcement, will be revamping the Magnolia menu to a certain degree (full menu below). As required by San Francisco law (non-fact), the fare will change seasonally; that said, it's not too different, as he'll be keeping many of the staples on the menu—the Scotch eggs are, thankfully, still there—but will roll out some "New Orleans and Southern inspired" items.
