Limewood is the replacement of extremely high-end Antoinette at the Claremont, and the Farimont Hotel Group is making culinary amends this go-round. In short, the result is good, not great—at least not yet. Michelin-starred San Francisco chef Dominique Crenn, the creative consultant on Antoinette, is gone, and Limewood is a much more casual and approachable in terms of food, price, and vibe under Bay Area restaurant vet Joseph Humphrey. The food, classic ingredient-driven California cuisine, can be very good, so tuck into the heritage pork porterhouse, the cavatelli, or agnolotti with confidence. If you’re looking to taste a sampling of flavors, the “canapé” section of the menu, in which you can choose from among 10 or so small dishes, is fun to explore, as is the bar menu where there lurks a very good hamburger of loosely packed grass-fed beef, sharp aged cheddar, and creamy horseradish. Yes, it’s $18, but with such panoramic views, it’s one worth making allowances for. Serves lunch and dinner daily. Located in the Claremont Club and Spa.
