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.

The first and second floors of 165 O’Farrell are to be ONE65 Patisserie, offering pastry, breakfast, lunch and takeout. The third floor, ONE65 Bistro, will be open for lunch and dinner with a menu of “California/French comfort food.” The fourth floor will operate as a cocktail and wine bar, ONE65 Lounge. And the capstone will be a fine dining restaurant, O’ by Claude Le Tohic, with the O’ connoting both O’Farrell and the French word for water. That’s on the fifth and sixth floors, offering skyline views.

D-Scheme Studio is behind the redesign of the original French Beaux Arts building.
