Chef Daniel Patterson’s Jack London Square restaurant Haven will temporarily shutter at the end of this month, according to a spokesperson for Patterson’s restaurant group.
The restaurant is closing “for construction” starting February 26, though it is unclear what that will entail. According to a tweet from Patterson in which he referred to “plans for Haven 2.0,” however, it sounds the restaurant itself will be getting an upgrade or reconcept of some kind; it is unclear whether that construction is directly related to the restaurant or the surrounding square. In the meantime, guests who have reservations at Haven post-February 26 will need to reschedule.
This isn’t the first time Haven has shuttered— the restaurant closed in January of 2015 for some menu changes, causing a minor kerfuffle as people assumed it was closed for good. As promised it reopened, with a new menu from then-chef Charlie Parker, so there’s reason to believe this is a similar situation.
Much love and respect for everyone who contributed their time and talents to Haven 1.0. Big plans for 2.0. More soon. https://t.co/UqBJQQfpv6— daniel patterson (@dcpatterson) February 17, 2017
During the closure, Haven chef Matt Brimer will head into SF to help Alta CA chef Anthony Lee prepare for Alta’s expansion into the Minnesota Street Project. Other employees of Haven will be reshuffled throughout the restaurant group, which includes Alfred’s Steakhouse, Alta CA, COI, Aster, and Plum Bar.
Stay tuned for updates on Haven’s construction, and timeline for reopening.
