Residents of San Francisco’s Inner Sunset neighborhood will soon be blessed by Tartine’s pastries, coffee, and aesthetics, as Tartine 9th Ave. nears a mid-July opening: If all goes as planned, it will open on (or around) July 15.
This outpost won’t purely be a bakery, nor will it incorporate the many facets of its larger, Manufactory sibling. Instead, it will be a casual restaurant serving breakfast, lunch, and weekend brunch, with dinner service in the works for later this summer. Leading the kitchen is chef Susannah Ok, who just finished a six-year stint as executive chef at the Battery.
The 3,000-square-foot space (which also boasts a 500-square-foot mezzanine) was designed by Studio BBA (also behind the still-new Tartine Manufactory in Los Angeles), and includes 45 seats and 10 on the outdoor patio. No reservations will be taken.
Like at other Tartine locations, pastries and crusty loaves of bread will be available to take home. Some of the style of dishes found at the Manufactory — smorrebrods, toasts, soups, salads, and small plates — will be on the menu at Tartine 9th Ave. as well, as well as leavened flatbreads. And, given its park-adjacent location, there’ll be a case of sandwiches, salads, and other fresh offerings to take out for picnics or other adventures requiring a meal. Bottled kombucha, cold brew from Coffee Manufactory, wine, and beer will be on hand, too.
This will technically be the fourth SF location from the growing restaurant group, with the original 18th St. bakery, Manufactory, and SFO locations going full swing. In LA, the Manufactory boasts even more square-footage and restaurant concepts that the SF original, and there are three more places to snag pastries and coffee.
When it opens at 1226 Ninth Avenue, hours will be 7 a.m.- 4 p.m. seven days a week; breakfast will run from 8 a.m.- 11 a.m., followed by lunch from 11 a.m.- 4 p.m., and brunch all day on weekends, from a 8 a.m.- 4 p.m.
