Gone is Parallel 37’s predecessor, the “Dining Room” of The Ritz-Carlton, San Francisco, and with it the linen tablecloths and rigid lineup of tableware. This Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star restaraunt still offers the refined experience expected from the luxury resort chain but in an atmosphere more simpatico with California’s laid-back attitude. In the restaurant’s bar, well-known San Francisco mixologist Camber Lay (of Town Hall and Epic Roasthouse fame) handcrafts vintage classic cocktails such as Manhattans, Martinis and Sazeracs as well as inventive new concoctions using ingredients such as pear green tea, nutmeg, and housemade hibiscus bitters that pair expertly with Chef Rotondo’s fresh California spread. The wine menu has a wide selection of California’s finest but a handful of international labels will enrich your wine tasting passport.
