The Comstock Saloon is Looking Good

Scheduled to open on May 20th in San Francisco is the Comstock Saloon, the restaurant and bar by Jonny Raglin and Jeff Hollinger of Absinthe. The website is looking good and now has a sample menu (PDF) available for viewing. (I've also pasted it below the jump.)

The physical space is looking great too, although it's hard to photograph to show the layout.

(The dining room with restored tile floors, patterned wallpaper, high ceilings, and tall windows to the left.)

(Another view of the dining room. This is going to be lovely.)

A view from the upstairs lounge is always a good vantage point.
