Jardiniere, one of the best restaurants in the Bay Area and a Beard Foundation favorite, will reportedly close its doors on August 19th (this Sunday), until September 13th. When Traci Des Jardins’ renowned restaurant reopens, it will feature an entirely new, walk-in only lounge/bar area in its downstairs area:
On Sunday, the restaurant will close for an overhaul that includes turning the downstairs dining room into the J Lounge. The current 26-seat bar will double its seating with sofas, banquettes and cocktail tables, and offer Traci des Jardins’ food and bar manager Thad Vogler’s cocktails.”It’s something Tracy [sic] always wanted to do,” says general manager Greg Rowen. “The bar has always been so popular.”
As if the remodeling weren’t enough cause for celebration in itself, the September 13th reopening will also coincide with Jardiniere’s ten-year anniversary celebrations.
