The glass-enclosed Terrace Room dining room has a panoramic view of Lake Merritt and is housed in a historic landmark building (circa 1927) with Art Deco styling that highlights include elaborate wrought-iron pillars that open to breathtaking views, a series of murals depicting scenes of Lake Merritt and the surrounding area, and period light fixtures. Even entertainers such as the Count Basie Band have played there!
Jack Andrews is the new Executive Chef bringing a fresh vision to the New American cuisine prepared with seasonal, often locally sourced, sustainable, organic ingredients.
