Walking into the newly built three-story building dedicated to the expanding Restoration Hardware empire means engaging with the Marin-launched brand, now known as RH, in surround sound. Plush sofas and marble tables feel familiar to fans of the brand who will recognize the neutral-colored fabrics and California-sized furniture from their store at the Village at Corte Madera mall (which will close when RH Marin opens). Ride up the golden-hued elevator to the top floor where a restaurant bedecked in RH style, extends the brand from a retail experience to one where guests can linger over a shaved vegetable salad or a truffled grilled cheese sandwich on Panorama Bakery sourdough. This rooftop sunroom boasts glass ceilings and walls for an epic view of Mount Tam and a feeling of floating above it all.
Walk under the glittery chandeliers through the sliding glass doors where comfy chairs from RH’s Costa and Aegean furniture collections are amply spaced on the outdoor terrace for privacy and to conform with county mandates for wellness during COVID times. Order one of the 40 wines from the internationally-curated wine list or try the RH Bellini with peach puree before diving into the RH Burger, a best-seller at RH’s nine other embedded restaurants around the country. A morning menu includes avocado toast, topped with Brokaw avocados, and the RH Scramble, both easily paired with a matcha latte or a Trumer Pilsner. Thus sated, explore the brand’s in-house design studio or browse the rugs, bathroom fixtures, and bedding on your way back downstairs.
