Menlo Grill reopens as Menlo Tavern

 

What was once Menlo Grill has reopened with a new name, chef and menu at the Stanford Park Hotel at 100 El Camino Real in Menlo Park.

Now Menlo Tavern, the restaurant's bar opened earlier this month and the dining room on Monday, March 11.

General Manager Patrick Lane said in a previous interview that he decided to run the restaurant as its own business separate from the hotel, which prompted the revamp.

The updated menu skews toward American comfort food, like skillet cornbread, deviled eggs, cast iron-seared salmon, burgers (including a meatless Impossible Burger), pasta, roasted chicken and filet mignon. Lunch dishes range from $15 to $19, and dinner entrees range from $16 to $39. Those looking to splurge can get the "fries and bubbles," French fries with a bottle of Veuve Clicquot ($135), or California white sturgeon caviar, créme fraiche and potato chips paired with a martini ($45).

The restaurant is meant to serve the local community as much as hotel guests, Lane said.

Menlo Tavern opens for breakfast at 6:30 a.m. Monday through Friday and 7:30 a.m. Saturday and Sunday. Lunch starts daily at 11 a.m. and dinner at 5 p.m. The bar is open daily until midnight.
