James Beard Award-winning chef Claude Le Tohic is at work on a massive, four restaurant, six-story monument to French cuisine in Union Square: ONE65 is an ambitious multi-story, multi-concept layer cake honoring the many elements of a single cuisine.

Ambition isn’t something that’s in short supply these days at 165 O’Farrell St. in Union Square. The six-story brick building is in the throes of a multimillion dollar renovation effort. Once complete, its name will officially be ONE65, and the 25,000-square-foot interior will be home to ONE65 Patisserie, ONE65 Bistro, ONE65 Lounge & Bar and a fine dining restaurant called O’. Suffice to say, ONE65 might be San Francisco’s most ambitious hospitality project of 2018.
The Center Hardware warehouse building at the base of Potrero Hill, will be razed and a modern four-story building designed and newly refined by D-Scheme Studio, with 59 condos over 3,400 square feet of new Production, Distribution, and Repair (PDR) space and a basement garage for 44 cars, will rise up to 40 feet in height across the 249 Pennsylvania Avenue site.
Buffalo Theory, the new craft beer-focused restaurant and bar on Polk Street, is built on the idea that “Theoretically, drinking beer makes you smarter.” Obviously, this is a concept we can get behind, which is why we were so excited to immediately fall in love with this space, the food, and the 30 beers on tap.
