Stacy and Adam Jed, the co-founders of Bluestem Brasserie announced the reopening of their popular restaurant Bluestem Restaurant & Market. Located in the Market Street at 1 Yerba Buena Ln, San Francisco, CA. Bluestem includes a restaurant and bar, an all-day retail market that will serve products from local food and beverage artisans, as well as their own house made products.
The market opened its doors on Wednesday, November 10, while the restaurant will open for lunch service Black Friday, November 26. Dinner service will follow soon after. Weekend brunch will be available in the near future and the restaurant will continue to offer off-site catering and private events.
“We’re very excited to reopen Bluestem with this new model,” says owner Stacy Jed in a press release. “We wanted to serve people according to how they eat and drink today; letting them shape their own experience, giving them multiple opportunities and ways to enjoy Bluestem: in the restaurant, at home or on the go. At the same time, we used this opportunity to create a better and more supportive model for our team.“
The new menus reflect the evolution of California coastal fare. Seafood and meat are sustainably sourced along with local fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds.
Local pastry chef Lori Baker will continue to oversee the restaurant’s dessert program, where guests will find her seasonal tall cakes, fresh baked Cinnamon Crunch Babka Muffins and can enjoy an Nespresso coffee, cold pressed juices, wellness shots, sandwiches, salads, snacks, prepared food items, pantry staples including artisan coffees and sea salts, and vegan soft serve.
The bar offers seven cocktails including a Cioppino modeled after the iconic San Francisco dish. The wine and beer list focuses on local and regional producers. Twelve still and two sparkling wines are available by the glass.
The market is inspired by a chef’s pantry where one can find the best ingredients and prepared items. It’s an all-day experience designed to meet an array of needs, from a morning coffee, to a quick and healthful lunch, a one-stop-shop for the highest quality products needed to prepare a home cooked meal, and a selection of gifts reflecting the region’s craftspeople. A number of the restaurant’s signature items will also be available packaged for retail sale.
The market will initially be open Tuesday – Saturday, 9am – 8pm with expanded hours to follow. The restaurant will be serving lunch from 11:30 am – 2:30 pm and dinner seating from 4:30 pm – 8:00 pm. Private events and catering are both available.
