Chef Justin Deering Headed to 15 Romolo

When we last saw chef Justin Deering, he was chef de cuisine at Café des Amis in the Marina, but now the chef is making a move over North Beach staple 15 Romolo starting tonight.

No specific details yet on how the food will change, but the bar kitchen will soon be moving to a new harvest menu, and we've heard the bar program will shift to include more by-the-bottle selections of wine and fortified wine-based cocktails. According to sources, the food is going to be wine and cocktail friendly.

You can also get a sample of what to expect from Deering tonight at the CUESA Yacht Rock: Summer Cocktails of the Farmers Market event (note: tickets are almost sold out).

15 Romolo is already a cocktail destination, and departing chef Larry Piaskowy made his mark by elevating the dinner and brunch menus. We can't wait to see what chef Deering does with the menu. As for Piaskowy, he is focusing his attention on his line of pre-packed food for bars without kitchens called Bar Jars.

15 Romolo, 15 Romolo Place (at Broadway), 398-1359
