SAN FRANCISCO — Fans of Claude Le-Tohic, the James Beard Foundation Best Chef Southwest in 2010, won’t have much longer to wait for the next restaurant from the French chef. The former executive chef at Joël Robuchon who left the restaurant at the MGM Grand in 2016 plans to open ONE65 in Union Square. The San Francisco Chronicle describes the 25,000-square-foot restaurant as a collection of four restaurants and lounges spanning six floors.
The restaurant at 165 O’Farrell St. features ONE65 Patisserie on the first and second floors. That space offers casual dining for breakfast and lunch. The third floor features ONE65 Bistro & Grill with about 70 seats and lunch and dinner menus delivering what Le-Tohic calls “French comfort food.”
Diners can head up to the fourth floor for ONE65 Lounge with its views of Union Square. Le-Tohic plans to split that space into three areas with “high-top cocktail tables, bar-side overlooking an exposed wine cellar, and a whiskey library seating.”Finally, the very French O’ by Claude Le Tohic takes over the fifth and sixth floors with the French fine dining that fans have come to love. Le-Tohic tells the Chronicle that his menu “is based around the elements of water, fire and earth, though the specifics are still in flux.”
The restaurant plans to open this fall.
