ONE65, from Chef Claude Le Tohic will offer four contemporary French cuisine dining experiences, with the first phase opening this fall in Union Square.
The structure is listed on the National Registry for historic buildings, and designers at San Francisco-based D-Scheme Studio will preserve the original French Beaux Arts style while enhancing it with streamlined, modern elements. Each restaurant has its own vision, but all are connected through art by Christian Andrade and D-Scheme Studio’s architect and president Marc Dimalanta. Sustainability was top of mind for the interiors which included recycled cork floors and reused porcelain panels. Raw cloth napkins, tufted leather banquettes, wooden tabletops and recycled China crockery also deliver on the pared-back aesthetic.
The first and second floors will house ONE65 Patisserie, which will serve up classic French pastries as well as casual breakfast and lunch options. The Bistro at ONE65 on the third floor will have an open kitchen anchored by a Josper charcoal oven imported from Spain—the only one of its kind in the city.
ONE65 Lounge overlooks Union Square from the top floor in a luxurious setting joining a handful of upper-floor bars in the city. Rounding out the eateries will be O’ with a menu based on the elements of water, fire and earth.
