This is the final week for the Clement Street Bar & Grill, which will close its doors after 34 years in business at 708 Clement.
The restaurant, known for its cozy booths, friendly bar and dedication to airing Giants games for former employee Baseball Mary, will be missed.
Owner Harold Baum is retiring, as is his partner in the business and the Bar & Grill’s kitchen chief, Hal Phu.
The 1905 building will be taken over by a new restaurant – Heritage – from award-winning chef Cameron Lewark and his partner Caroline McLaughlin. Lewark is a veteran of Spago, having worked at both the Beverly Hills and Maui locations where he was known for creating a Hawaiian fusion menu that drew heavily from Southeast Asian flavors and ingredients.
We’ve been unable to find any information about the expected menu for Heritage, and chances are they’ll need to do some upgrades before they open their doors.
But in the meantime, be sure and stop by Clement Street Bar & Grill to say your goodbyes and thank you’s for 34 years on Clement Street.
