Design Dish: Selby’s Restaurant Comes to Atherton


San Francisco-based restaurant and hospitality company, Bacchus Management Group, is bringing their signature style to the South Bay this summer with the opening of Selby’s. The fine dining restaurant will pay tribute to classic American cuisine while incorporating modern techniques and bold, rich flavors.

Named for the tree-lined street adjacent to its location, Selby’s 10,000 square foot space is inspired by the glamorous Hollywood dining scene of the 1930s and 1940s, paying homage to establishments as Chasen’s and Romanoff’s, as well as New York’s 21 Club.

Interior designer Stephen Brady, formerly of Ralph Lauren Home, brought the design to life, transforming the historic building into a modern, eclectic space with a lively color scheme, dark green mohair walls, club-style black panels, and chestnut leather chairs. Lost Art Salon curated a selection of custom contemporary and vintage artwork throughout the dining and bar areas, and artist and steelworker-designer Magnus Schevene created a bespoke 20-foot chandelier that hangs near the entrance (a second custom chandelier hangs in the main dining room).

The menu at Selby’s menu will be overseen by Executive Chef Mark Sullivan and include dishes like the signature “Black Label” burger and hyper-seasonal vegetables sourced from Bacchus’ private organic farm. The extensive wine list will feature thousands of options including vintage Italian, Spanish, French and California wines and the with 3,000 – 4,000 wines, making this one of the most significant opening wine lists in the U.S. in the last 15 years.

Selby’s is located at 3001 El Camino Real, Redwood City, CA 94061. For more information, visit
