Cocktail Menu: Maven in San Francisco

Logo_mavenOpening on Wednesday, December 21 in the former RNM space in the Lower Haight in San Francisco is Maven. (Not to be confused with Haven, the Daniel Patterson restaurant openeing in the East Bay.)

Unlike RNM, this space is clearly a bar that serves food rather than a restaurant that serves drinks- the menu is 2/3 booze, 1/3 food. All the booze is meat to pair with specific dishes - you can see the full pairings on the menu at Maven's website

The cocktails were designed by Jay Bordeleau (co-owner / beverage director), with input from lead bartender Kate Bolton (Michael Mina). The menu is below.
