Introducing Corridor in San Francisco

Hi Neighbor Opens Corridor: Upscale-Casual Dining in the Heart of San Francisco Corridor Shakes Up Mid-Market with Elevated Comfort Fare, Happy Hour Delights, and High-Level Hospitality

Introducing Corridor in San FranciscoHi Neighbor, the San Francisco restaurant group behind beloved establishments Trestle, Stones Throw, Fat Angel, and the new Corridor Café, today announces the opening of Corridor.  The restaurant delivers an upscale counter-service concept in a fine dining environment with a focus on delicious food and thoughtful service.

Corridor’s menu features an elevated take on comforting culinary classics, reflecting Hi Neighbor’s defining hallmarks including a supremely high level of service, warm hospitality, and delectable cuisine led by Executive Chef/Partner Jason Halverson.

The restaurant will open during select lunch and/or dinner hours seven days a week, boasting a thoughtfully curated menu and wine and beer selection.  The beverage program encompasses one of the best new happy hour deals in town – from 3-6 p.m. daily, every single menu item including wines by the glass, draft beer, and delectable cocktails, will be available for only $5 per beverage.

Introducing Corridor in San Francisco“We set out to create a new type of dining experience with Corridor – a central gathering spot that offers the perfect blend of thoughtful service, a convivial atmosphere, and high-end, quality food… all in a casual and fun setting,” said Ryan Cole, partner at Hi Neighbor.

At Corridor, diners can plan ahead with reservations or visit on a whim, with an array of dining options to enjoy delicious food and drinks in a variety of settings including the main dining area, bar or mezzanine.  With a mix of table sizes and 70 spaciously appointed seats, it’s the perfect gathering spot for any and every occasion.  The restaurant holds a significant portion of seats for walk-ins, where diners are greeted by a host or hostess upon arrival and personally guided through the ordering process step-by-step.  This includes placing their order at the counter before taking a seat to await their food, where they’re fully serviced from that point forward.  Reservations will be limited to 10 tables of seating on the spacious second-floor mezzanine for a more traditional sit-down dining experience, and the space will also serve as a private dining venue.  The unique concept of Corridor underscores Hi Neighbor’s innovative approach to the art of dining and hospitality, particularly in consideration of the challenges presented by San Francisco’s current dining scene.

Introducing Corridor in San FranciscoCole added, “The model of Corridor is unique, so the teamwork of our staff is what really sets the bar here.  We’re fortunate to work with the City’s top talent at Hi Neighbor, who go above and beyond to deliver the best hospitality and service in San Francisco.  The Corridor team brings extensive experience from noted restaurants across the Bay Area.”  “We are striving to have the entire Corridor dining experience be swift, thoughtful and seamless from start to finish… You place an order at the counter but never have to get up again once you’re seated.  It allows guests to have any type of dining experience they wish.”

The food menu features seven distinct sections, with the majority of dishes coming in at under $20.  “Shareables” include items such asCrispy Falafel Croquettes ($9) and a savory Monkey Bread ($6).  “Soup & Salad” features a Corn Chowder ($9) and Crispy Duck Confit & Chicories salad ($16).  “Pasta” dishes pay homage to favorites from sister restaurants Trestle and Stones Throw, including the Squid Ink Conchiglie ($22) and Garganelli Bolognese ($16).  “Square Meals” are entrées that come with the choice of one or two sides, and include hearty and wholesome items such as Vegetable Pot Pie ($17) and the Chicken Parm Sandwich, beloved from Outside Lands 2015 ($14).  “Sides” offer something for everyone at just $6 a la carte, including Pommes FritesAsparagus a la Plancha, and Espresso-Roasted Carrots.  “Daily Eats” are specials available at 3 p.m. every day, running the gamut from Slow-Braised Beef Shortribs ($26) to Fried Chicken ($20).  “Sweets” feature elevated versions of nostalgic favorites in distinctive Hi Neighbor style by pastry chef Tara Lewis, such as a ‘Nilla Pudding Tart and a Cherry Crostata – for $8 each.

Corridor is located on the ground floor of the striking 100 Van Ness high-rise, which is nestled amid the Van Ness “Corridor” in San Francisco’s newly trending Mid-Market district.  The restaurant, boasting an open kitchen design and large floor-to-ceiling windows, is in the heart of it all and within a few blocks’ walking distance to numerous arts, cultural and entertainment institutions such as City Hall, Bill Graham Civic

Auditorium, and San Francisco Symphony, as well as new eateries, bars, and prominent tech headquarters like Twitter, Square and Dolby. Corridor opens next to – and on the heels of – Corridor Café, which debuted this past March offering gourmet grab-and-go food and creative coffee beverages by LAMILL COFFEE.

Corridor is the latest concept by Hi Neighbor, the young, dynamic San Francisco restaurant group comprising partners Ryan Cole, Tai Ricci and Executive Chef Jason Halverson (all MICHAEL MINA alums), along with Jason Kirmse.  This is the team’s fourth restaurant opening in the past 2.5 years, including the year-old Trestle which received status as a Michelin Bib Gourmand recipient and one of Michael Bauer’sSan Francisco Chronicle Top 100 Restaurants for 2016.

Corridor is located at 100 Van Ness Ave. (at Fell).  Hours of operation are 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. on weekdays and 3 to 11 p.m. on weekends.  The majority of the menu will be available on June 28; reservations will be accepted starting the week of July 4.  For more information, please visit or
