TBD RESTAURANT OPENS TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 5, 2013
New concept, spearheaded by AQ Chef Mark Liberman, focuses on open-fire grilling, smoking,
rotisserie, and hearth-baking methods
WHAT: The emerging Mid-Market neighborhood of San Francisco welcomes the opening of TBD Restaurant on Tuesday, November 5, 2013 at 1077 Mission Street, just two doors east of sister restaurant, AQ Restaurant & Bar. Chef Mark Liberman, current executive chef at AQ, is the driving force behind the culinary program, where a Grillworks� grill and custom-built hearth are the exclusive means of cooking.
The Northern California-inspired menu pushes the limits of cooking with fire, emphasizing open-fired, grilled, smoked, rotisserie, and hearth-baked vegetable and meat preparations. TBD also features a selection of bar snacks and desserts focusing on soft-serve ice cream, a favorite of Chef Mark. The beverage program includes more than 20 beers on tap, a global-inspired wine list, and an extensive sherry selection, as well as low-alcohol cocktails called "loopholes."
WHEN: OPENING TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 5, 2013
TBD offers dinner Monday through Thursday from 5:30-10 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 5:30-11:30 p.m. Lunch and happy hour will be introduced in early 2014.
