This New Year’s Eve, 31 December 2012, will mark the final night of service for the Bar Bambino family. We have had an amazing run and have a nearly countless list of successes and accomplishments that I could list off. We created, what nearly 6 years on, remains one of the most beautiful restaurants in San Francisco. We created design trends that persist today. We established a point of view in our menus and our approaches that have been replicated and copied throughout the Bay Area. We have an excellent reputation for quality of food and quality of service. We have received enviable press accolades.
Most importantly it is the gratitude of guests, the community, and our suppliers that is, far and beyond, the most rewarding. The rewards of daily receiving a note, a handshake, a kiss on both cheeks telling me of an “amazing experience” or “thanks for being in the neighborhood” never, ever gets old and is one of the most humbling, gratifying, and exceptional experiences of my life. It is a feeling that is only surpassed by the feeling of group hugs with my wife and four year-old daughter...something that this business, in this City affords too little time for and something I look forward to doing much more of in the coming weeks, months, and years.
Until then, please come support us – me, my family, my amazing staff (past and present) – and bask in the glow of our oasis on 16th Street. For the next two weeks, we’ll continue to do what we do best while reminiscing about our amazing times together. And for a lucky 100 or so guests, we will be open New Years Eve. We will be celebrating as we look toward new adventures. We’ve opted to serve our regular menu in order to relive some old favorites and focus on doing what we do best, so make your reservation soon to help us toast a fond farewell.
Thank you, from the bottom of my heart.
