Menlo Tavern Gets an Update in the Stanford Park Hotel

Laura Ness | July 2, 2019 | Food & Drink Story Eat and Drink

Menlo Tavern has updated its menu and interiors at its location in the Stanford Park Hotel, a favorite of Stanford visitors and tech clients.


Catering to the eclectic ecosystem of Stanford University and its high-tech neighbors, Menlo Tavern, formerly Menlo Grill, has been rebranded and remodeled. Helmed by chef Jason Dalling, previously of the Fairmont hotels in Washington, D.C., and Alberta, Canada, Menlo Tavern boasts an upscale yet unpretentious setting sporting American comfort food that neatly integrates elements of haute cuisine with everyday favorites. Angry Deviled Eggs with pepper oil; Cowgirl Creamy burrata; or crispy chicken sliders with spicy kale slaw are fun to share. Veuve Clicquot with a bowl of Tavern fries; or California white sturgeon caviar and creme fraiche with potato chips ($29), accompanied by a martini ($15), are perfect for special occasions. Cast iron-seared Skuna Bay salmon and the Harris Ranch black Angus burger are sure to sate. Classic San Francisco cioppino, a seafood stew inspired by Italian immigrants who helped build the city by the Bay, pairs nicely with live music on the patio on a summer’s eve. 100 El Camino Real, Menlo Park, 650.330.2790
