Robert Bohr, Ryan Hardy, and Grant Reynolds are busy putting the finishing touches on their Kenmare Street sequel to Charlie Bird. The restaurant, dubbed Pasquale Jones, will have a menu from Hardy and Tim Caspare, the former chef de cuisine at Italian hit Cotogna in San Francisco. Here's a rendering of the space from Leroy Street Studio, the same team that designed Charlie Bird. The logo was created by Ken Fulk, the designer who also made the iconography for Sadelle's and Carbone Vegas. The dining room will feature around 50 seats, spread out between big tables, banquettes, and a dining counter.
One of the Stefano Ferraro ovens will be devoted to pizza, while the other is going to cook the meats and vegetables. The menu will include around two homemade pastas and five pizzas, in addition to wood-fired steaks, shanks, game birds, whole fish, and seasonal vegetable dishes. The wine list will be a bit smaller than what's offered at Charlie Bird, with an emphasis on Italian selections and Burgundy. The owners expects a lower check average than Charlie Bird, and they eventually want to offer delivery. And just like Charlie Bird, rap music is definitely part of the equation.
If everything goes according to plan, Pasquale Jones will open at the end of January.
