Unique Tableside Service Pairs Vodka With Chocolates & Caviar
The Top Of The Mark lounge is open again and this legendary bar and restaurant high above San Fransisco is right on the mark as it hits it out of the park with a new menu of cocktails, as well as a unique vodka-tasting experience.
This is the new cocktails menu and starting in July the Top of the Mark will launch a partnership with Hanson of Sonoma Organic Vodka that includes a “Vodka Expressions” service, a tableside cart tasting where select organic Hanson vodkas are paired with artisanal chocolates from Kollar Chocolates. Later in the summer, caviar will be added to the experience.
With the curated Vodka Expressions service, people will choose from a salty or sweet flight of Hanson Organic Vodkas, delivered via a tableside cart.
There are five flavors of the vodkas – Original, Cucumber, Meyer Lemon, Mandarin, and Habanero – and each one lends itself to a special pairing flight. The indulgent sweet flight is accented with delectable treats from Kollar Chocolates. Some of the sweet pairings will include Original with a Passion Fruit chocolate, Meyer Lemon with a Sunflower Seed Praline or Habanero with an Orange Grand Marnier chocolate.
The salty flight (launching in August) will include a choice of caviar pairings with house-made potato chips, cucumber or endive, all enriched with crème fraîche.
The Top of the Mark also has new food menu that includes Sonoma County Goat Cheese Fundido with Chorizo, Pickled Calabrian Chilies and Crostini; Tuna Tataki Tacos on a Fried Wonton Shell with Sriracha Aioli, Cilantro and Red Bell Pepper; or Short Rib Sliders with Anise and Apricot Glazed Short Ribs, Cilantro Jalapeno Slaw and Garlic Aioli.
On top of this, the bar/lounge/restaurant also features soft latin/jazz music with a DJ on site on Friday.
The Top Of The Mark has been an iconic San Francisco landmark for cocktails in a classy lounge setting since its opening in 1939. Its location provides broad views of the city, the Golden Gate Bridge and the bay.
It is open Tuesday through Saturday from 4:30-11:00 p.m. Appetizers are served from 4:30-9:30 p.m. It is located on the 19th floor of the InterContinental Mark Hopkins at 999 California Street at the crest of San Francisco’s tony Nob Hill.
