Corridor, the counter service-style restaurant from the Hi Neighbor Restaurant Group (Trestle, Stones Throw) is opening tomorrow, June 28. The full-scale restaurant is joining adjacent Corridor Café, which opened in March, in the 100 Van Ness building.
The menu from executive chef Jason Halverson is comprised of soups, salads, pastas, shareable appetizers and "square meals," featuring comfort food like a half chicken with two sides. Like Hi Neighbor's other restaurants, the cuisine focuses on "comfort classics," like French dip sandwiches and veggie pot pie. Beer, wine and cocktails are also on offer at the 70-seat restaurant, which is open for reservations and walk-ins.
Diners will be greeted by a hostess, place an order at the counter and then take a seat to await their food; after that, servers will be on hand to help order more, and deliver food. It's an interesting take on the counter service style, one that takes San Francisco's current staff shortage into close account. There will also be ten tables of seating on the mezzanine for full-service, and private dining.
Corridor will be open seven days per week— 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. on weekdays and 3 p.m to 11 p.m. on weekends. There will also be a pretty epic happy hour deal from 3 p.m.-6 p.m. every day, with wines by the glass, draft beer, and cocktails available at $5 a pop.
