Menlo Park’s Springline will bring restaurants and bars to El Camino Real


Now under construction on the eastern peninsula spring linea 6.4-acre mixed-use project that will bring residences, offices, outdoor spaces, retail — and plenty of restaurants — to Menlo Park.

The developer, Presidio Bay, hopes to create a new catering center to attract potential tenants to this project billed as a Sand Hill Road 2.0 venture capital center. Many of the restaurants advertised are San Francisco ventures expanding into Silicon Valley; one, Cantine, is a local product.

Among the highlights:

Canteen: It will be a new concept — think wine bar and casual bites — from chef Greg Kuzia-Carmel (Quince, Cotogna, Per Se), who has already wowed Menlo Park foodies at his popular Camper restaurant on Santa Cruz Avenue.

Chief Fico: Named to Bon Appetit’s list of America’s 10 Best New Restaurants for 2018, this standout San Francisco eatery will not only open a restaurant, but also an Italian Market with a butcher counter and walk-in ice cream display case.

Naked bottle brewing: This SF beer brewer, which expanded to Santa Clara in 2020, will build its third tasting room here.

The love of Burma: The Burmese Superstar restaurant group, an SF institution, will establish itself outside the city and the East Bay with this new spot.

Robin: Look for an omakase menu and Japanese whiskey bar from this upscale SF sushi purveyor.

Andytown Roasters: Another top outside of SF from the woman-owned cafe that’s been roasting in the Outer Sunset since 2014.
