San Francisco now has another late-night eating option in the newly-opened Starboard. From the same owners as Slate next door (the space shares a window, but is a separate business), Starboard was created on the idea for a "hofbrau-style, late-night, old-school style, but bring it more into the future," co-owner and general manager Suzi Ray (Alembic, Roka Akor) told Eater. That means counter service with eclectic dishes from a prime rib pho sandwich to scallion hush puppies. Perhaps the most notable part of this entire enterprise is that the kitchen is open until 3 a.m. on the weekend, making it a solid new late-night go-to — just note that drink service stops at 1 a.m.
It’s beer and wine only at Starboard, and co-owner/bar manager Daniel Hyatt (Alembic, Slate) put together an approachable menu. Starboard is now open on Tuesday and Wednesday from 4 p.m. to 12 p.m. and Thursday through Saturday from 5 p.m. to 3 a.m.
