Less than a year after opening a flagship restaurant in the East Bay, the Belcampo Meat Co. has announced it will plant a flag on the mid-Peninsula too.
The organic butchery will close its smaller shops/eateries both at Palo Alto’s Town & Country Village and in San Francisco’s Russian Hill area and build a 7,000-square-foot restaurant at Hillsdale Shopping Center in San Mateo.
A new commissary kitchen in the South of Market area will serve San Francisco clients with delivery of prepared meals and raw meats.
“It’s bittersweet for me,” CEO and co-founder Anya Fernald said in a statement. “We have had a great run in both our Peninsula and San Francisco locations but we could not be more thrilled to partner with Bohannon Development Company and bring the Belcampo experience to the Hillsdale Shopping Center.”
The company is also expanding to New York City; a Hudson Yards location will open in March.
Like the flagship at Oakland’s Jack London Square, the new Hillsdale operation will feature a sit-down restaurant and a retail butcher case. (Check out our First Look at that location.)
The focus will remain the organic, grass-fed, sustainable and humanely raised meats for which Belcampo is known. All of the meat and poultry — from cattle to quail — is raised on the company’s farm near Mount Shasta and butchered in Belcampo facilities. Heritage breeds are a specialty.
A summertime opening is forecast.
