Chop Bar restaurant wil move across the street from its current location in the Jack London District to a larger space twice its size this July.
The new space is at 190 4th St., a brand-new mixed-use residential and retail building.
“Ten years ago, chef Lev Delany and I opened Chop Bar with the vision of creating a gathering place for the community – a place where neighbors can meet for a meal, coffee in the morning, or cocktails at night,” said co-owner Chris Pastena.
“Over the years we have grown to love our community here, and we’re excited about the next generation of Chop Bar, with an even larger space in the Jack London neighborhood we’ve been part of since 2009.”
The new space measures 3,000 square feet, a huge increase over the original Chop Bar's 1,600 square feet.
It will have a similar design to the original restaurant, employing much recycled wood, metal furniture, and an L-shaped bar featuring a recycled-paper top.
Before moving, the original Chop Bar is hosting a series of special events — including a five-course dinner with pairings from Tessier Winery on April 30; a Mexican food-and-drink takeover from May 1 through May 5; and the tenth annual Pig Roast on June 23.
