Fish & Farm has successfully transitioned into its new location on Clay Street, in the space formerly occupied by mediocre pub-style chain, Elephant & Castle. Previously located in the Mark Twain Hotel, F&F has made the leap to a more stylish, Financial District address, with a menu to match.
According to Inside Scoop, the restaurant soft-opens today, Thursday, May 7, serving breakfast, lunch and happy hour to start, with dinner service slated to begin next week. Chef George Morrone (previously of Aqua, Fifth Floor and most recently Gusto in San Carlos) is heading up the kitchen, joining owner Michael Najjar as a partner in the business.
The upscale "New American" restaurant is offering breakfast items like lemon ricotta hot cakes and the mysterious "Drunken Crumpet House-made with a Smile," alongside standard fare like poached eggs, a Strauss yogurt parfait, Illy coffee and fancy Dammann Freres tea. Lunch is rather upscale, offering SF's standard, pricey house-made burger ($16) composed of ground sirloin and brisket and served with smoked salt fries, a stone crab bisque and ahi tuna tartare (one of the dishes Morrone originally helped make fashionable back in the day).
Stay tuned for hours and details on the restaurant's upcoming "Grand Opening" bash.
