A longtime hallmark of California hospitality, Claremont Club & Spa, A Fairmont Hotel proudly unveils Limewood Bar & Restaurant, a vibrant, casual gathering place showcasing regionally-sourced cuisine. A kitchen inspired by Bay Area artisans is complimented by a spirited bar offering house-crafted cocktails, a well-balanced wine list that highlights labels true to their varietal and sense of place, and an enviable wines-by-the-glass selection.

A thoughtful and approachable menu highlights the bounties of Northern California’s sustainable farmers, ranchers, fishermen, bakers, artisans and vintners. Serving lunch and dinner daily, the dining room opens its doors for dinner service on Tuesday, August 30, 2016. Lunch service commences on Tuesday, September 6, 2016.

Bartenders pour original, inventive cocktails and put their own twists on the classics.  With an emphasis on creativity and quality ingredients including fresh-squeezed juices and house-made syrups, the seasoned crew shares their legendary expertise and craftsmanship.

Menus are influenced by the cultural diversity and sophistication of the San Francisco Bay Area, with fresh takes on familiar flavors, such as: cured wild king salmon with fennel, orange, and sassafras; lamb chops stuffed with spiced lamb sausage; house-made ricotta agnolotti with roasted mushrooms and balsamic; grilled grass fed beef burger with creamed horseradish; native acorn cavatelli with Monterey Bay squid and broccoli raab.

Chef Joseph Humphrey comes to Limewood Bar & Restaurant with a wealth of culinary experience, including Executive Chef stints at Michelin-lauded restaurants including the Restaurant at Meadowood (Napa, California) and Auberge de Soleil (Rutherford, California).

The historical Claremont, an architectural splendor which serves as a beacon of culture and refinement throughout the Golden State, is again a place where guests will experience exceptional cuisine, a vibrant bar scene and Claremont’s touted world-class service.  The restaurant delivers a casually elegant experience; where locals and guests revel in good taste and Berkeley style found only at Limewood Bar & Restaurant.
