We showed you the menus yesterday, and today we bring you a slideshow of the newly refreshed interior of Keiko à Nob Hill (1250 Jones Street). Back in the late nineties and early aughts this plush, elegant space was home to Charles Nob Hill a fine-dining destination for the elite of S.F. which also served as proving ground for chefs Melissa Perello, Jeremy Fox, and at one point Michael Mina. Co-owners Seigo Takei and his wife Keiko Takahashi who also serves as chef and namesake have simplified the décor and stripped the space of some of its pomp, adding some modern furnishings to the front lounge and dining room, and converting what was most recently a billiard room (while the place was Le Club) into a second dining room with a mirrored ceiling and a bright, feminine feel.
Check out our full slideshow of the restaurant, which opens to the public tonight, November 9, as well as a few preview dishes. Book your table here, but note that the restaurant will be operating at half capacity for a few weeks while they ramp up, so reservations will become more abundant in December. Nob Hill denizens and businesspeople with clients to impress should also take note: They serve lunch!
