Jay Bordeleau, proprietor of Lower Haight cocktail bar and restaurant Maven, has announced plans for his next endeavor: Cadence, a 90-seat restaurant and bar located in the rapidly developing mid-Market neighborhood, slated to open this summer at 1446 Market Street (at Polk).
To help realize his vision of Cadence, Bordeleau successfully recruited some heavyweight talent as his business partners in food and beverage, including highly accomplished chef Joey Elenterio, who most recently served as executive chef of Tyler Florence’s Wayfare Tavern. Named a San Francisco Chronicle Rising Star in 2012, Elenterio also served as executive chef of Chez TJ, where he earned a Michelin star; he can lay claim to the title of youngest American Michelin star chef in 2011/2012.
We got to try chef Joey Elenterio food many times since his day at Chez TJ, then Wayfare Tavern just last year. We love what this young chef is having in store for us with his talented skills in the kitchen. This over 6 ft tall, handsome, and humble chef surely will make Cadence a restaurant to watch in this Summer 2015.
On the cocktail front, Maven bar director/partner Kate Bolton will lead beverage operations and deliver a compelling lineup of culinary-driven craft cocktails, with an emphasis on market-driven libations that utilize fresh ingredients from Cadence’s kitchen.
The concept is progressive American, with a tightly focused menu that reflects Elenterio’s relentless commitment to using the very best ingredients and working with purveyors of the highest integrity.
