Local Love – Town Hall
Just a few short city blocks from your home at Jasper, you’ll find a little slice of New Orleans. Located at 324 Howard (corner of Howard and Fremont) and housed in a 1907 brick warehouse, Town Hall serves up American Southern deliciousness, one plate at a time.
Owned by partners Mitchell and Steven Rosenthal and Doug Washington, the popular SoMa restaurant blends the best of the season with overtones of Louisiana cuisine. Town Hall’s food is comforting, delicious and satisfying, as inviting and refined as its atmosphere.
Diners will be pleased with the diverse menu, offering such popular dishes as BBQ Gulf Shrimp with Worcestershire sauce and garlic herb toast, Faith’s Warm Ham & Cheese Toast boasting a soft poached egg with jalapeño cream or the ever-popular Town Hall Buttermilk Fried Chicken.
Their fried chicken is so popular that it even made the SF Eater list of best Fried Chicken Dishes in San Francisco and was described as:
crunchy, salty, and juicy: the buttermilk fried chicken trifecta. What’s the secret? The chicken is soaked in buttermilk, then injected with clarified butter, onion, and garlic juice, and tossed into flour before being fried for a long time at a low temp. The method might be controversial, but the result is non-stop glowing reviews since Town Hall opened. Plus: mushroom gravy. Yum.
Still need some prompting? Take a look at these Yelp reviews:
Booked an inside table for lunch, was seated promptly and overall great service. We enjoyed some beverages and started with the jalapeño cornbread, yum! We then had the fried chicken Sammy and the curried lentil salmon, both very tasty! The dessert was the highlight though, we had the butterscotch and chocolate pot de creme. – Jacky S.
The meal and service at Town Hall was fantastic. We had the corn bread, the pimento cheese appetizer (must order) and the best fried chicken sandwich. The fried chicken sandwich has a great crust-to-chicken ratio, tasty pickles and a creamy-vinegar slaw. If you are in the neighborhood, you must stop by Town Hall. – Chelsea J.
I have been going to this restaurant since it’s opening. We love the old fashions and the consistent delicious food. The service there is always good, but last night we had exceptional service. Jill was our server and it turned what is usually a great dining experience into a fantastic dining experience. Highly recommend. – Kellie S.
Jasper is a convergence. Of structure and imagination. Of the classic and the eclectic. Of art and life. This 400-foot high-rise apartment building crowns San Francisco’s fabled Rincon Hill and stands as an iconic addition to the city skyline. It is a statement about elegance in a place where elegance actually means something.
