The famous Chow Bay area restaurant chain is back with a huge new location in San Ramon

Some Bay Area diners may still have fond memories of Chow, the small chain of restaurants with locations in Inner Sunset and Mission Dolores, both of which survived more than 20 years in business before closing all of their locations – including outposts in Danville, Lafayette and Oakland — by 2019 due to bankruptcy. But now chef and owner Tony Gulisano is back with a new iteration of Chow, a massive 6,000-square-foot restaurant in San Ramon with a full bar and take-out market, Mercury News reports.

The new restaurant is set to open on August 10 and will operate pretty much all day, from 7 a.m. until late at night with a “canteen menu” including bites to run alongside the cocktail program, with plans to stay open “as late as the children of San Ramon want,” says Gulisano. It’s a huge space that seems to cater for everyone, mentions of vegetarian and vegan options, an outdoor patio, delivery, and the aforementioned take-out market. “I’m grateful to be able to have a second run,” Gulisano told the Wed. The space is located at 6000 Bollinger Canyon Road, Suite 1100.
