The Lowdown Venue Setting
In every neighborhood, village and town, there is a place where people gather. Once upon a time, neighbors would catch up with friends at the town square or weekly market, trading gossip and laughter at the post office or local pub. In Presidio Heights, that place is Spruce, a distinctive restaurant that reflects the charm of its surroundings and provides residents with a welcoming place in which to dine, socialize, and relax.
Chef Mark Sullivan’s California-inspired cuisine showcases the freshest and finest ingredients available. About 80 percent of the restaurant’s produce comes from SMIP Ranch, a private five-acre farm located in the hills above Woodside that grows vegetables, herbs, and other specialty crops exclusively for Bacchus Management Group’s family of restaurants.
