Another site to look forward to in San Francisco: a rooftop resto over Union Square

2 mins read

A new rooftop bar and restaurant are about to open over Union Square next year, located in the present Macy’s department store.

The massive restaurant, Chotto Matte, which first opened its doors in London, will take its new location at 100 Stockton Street. According to the project’s developer, Blatteis & Schnur, Inc., the construction of the establishment is already inches away from completion.

San Francisco Business Times has first carried the report of the new restaurant’s opening.

The project developer’s press release said that the dining establishment will accommodate more than 14, 000 square feet or prime rooftop real estate. It will offer an open-air dining “experience” with a robata grill counter and sushi bar in a 3, 000-square-foot space, giving the customers “sweeping views of the city.”

Blatteis & Schnur, Inc.’s senior vice president Ashley Brown said customers can access the rooftop using a private entrance equipped with elevators.

The old façade of 100 Stockton Street underwent a redesigning plan by the recognized architecture firm, Gensler.

“They took a fairly ugly building, turned it inside out and added a lot of glass and these amazing terracotta tiles,” Brown told SFGATE.

Brown added that the remaining space of the building will accommodate eight levels for varied uses. It has been under construction since 2017, with 50, 000 square feet of it as office space.

The soon-to-open restaurant, which has restaurants in London, Toronto, and Miami, offers cuisine of Japanese Peruvian fusion. Ceviche and anticucho barbeque are among their staples.

“We are truly thrilled with the addition of Chotto Matte at 100 Stockton, which will be a capstone for our project,” said Daniel Blatteis of Blatteis & Schnur, in the press release. “We conducted an international search for a venue that would maximize our unique eighth-level roof deck experience in terms of cuisine, buildout and ambiance. We have more than met these criteria with Chotto Matte, which will not only provide Union Square, but the entire city with a most formidable and memorable dining destination.”
