Bacchus Management Group is planning to introduce yet another dining concept to the Bay Area — this time at a historic building in Burlingame.
The group’s president, Tim Stannard, tells the San Francisco Business Times that he “initially said no when approached by the joint venture of Dostart Development Co. and Sares Regis Group to take over the historic former Burlingame Post Office space for redevelopment.”
That was before he saw the space, boasting terrazzo floors, high ceilings, and “slabs and slabs and slabs” of marble — “I walked in and I got chills,” Stannard shares with the journal.
Bacchus has signed a ten-year lease and, while the name and concept are yet to be decided, Stannard says that locals can expect the restaurant to be high-end, “gorgeous,” and “dramatic.”
The restaurant plans to open in sync with Town Square, a plaza designed and under development by the City of Burlingame slated to break ground in spring 2024.
At 220 Park Road, the eatery will neighbor eateries such as Narin Thai Cuisine, Saffron, and Salt & Straw.
