Holidays with Hi Neighbor

Hi Neighbor Hospitality Group had a busy year! The award-winning and dynamic Hi Neighbor Group, operated by partners Ryan Cole, Tai Ricci and Jason Halverson — reopened Trestle on Jackson St., opened the all-new Vault Steakhouse, launched a second Winter Wonderland at The Vault Garden, partnered with MAMA in Oakland and soon, will open their first bar concept — The Madrigal. Whether you are a longtime fan or new to their restaurants, the holidays are the perfect time to discover the best of Hi Neighbor. 

The Vault Garden

When The Vault Garden opened in June 2020, it was San Francisco’s first fully outdoor concept and the hottest spot in town — and remains a go-to for fun downtown. Now for the holiday season, Winter Wonderland is returning in a newly redesigned space that combines the coziness of the holidays with an unparalleled view of the 80-foot Christmas tree at 555 California. Also, be on the lookout for the staff — outfitted in holiday sweaters! We’ll be celebrating all season with drinks and bites with friends, family or colleagues.

The Vault Garden is located at 555 California Street, San Francisco, on the outdoor covered patio. For more information and the latest updates, please visit and follow on Facebook (@TheVaultGarden) and Instagram (@thevault555). Hours of operation: Tuesday – Saturday, 12 PM – 9 PM

The Vault Steakhouse

If you haven’t been to the Vault Steakhouse yet, you are missing San Francisco’s new, yet classic steakhouse. The perfect place for both a romantic date or business dinner, it will charm you with modern sides, choose-your-own steak knives and some of the best cocktails in town. Looking for something a little different this year? Join The Queens of Christmas in celebrating the final Tits Up Drag Brunch of the year – a show that will delight and entertain! Guests will enjoy a multi-course brunch including sweets, savory — and everything in between. What better way to kick off the season in style!

White Truffles
White truffles

Trestle has been a longtime San Francisco favorite for some of the best pre-fixe menus around. Pro tip: don’t forget to add the supplemental pasta course! Now back at their homebase on Jackson Street, they present the return of their White Truffle Event with $20 truffles available as menu add-ons beginning Nov. 26 through the end of the year. Menus crafted to pair perfectly with these coveted funghi make for a decadent yet affordable treat during this season of indulgence!

The Madrigal
The Madrigal

On our radar for pre-theater, post-theater and just a night on the town, The Madrigal cocktail bar will open in December, just steps away from City Hall and in the heart of the Civic Center’s cultural attractions. Both a reservable cocktail bar and a full service restaurant, it is designed for warmth, comfort and fun. Stop by for signature cocktails like The Screen Test, made with dark rum and Kumquat liqueur, coconut milk, basil and Thai Chili — and inventive bites, including a late-night breakfast sandwich! 

The Madrigal is located at 100 Van Ness, San Francisco, CA 94102. For more information and the latest updates, please visit, and follow the restaurant on Facebook (@TheMadrigalSF) and Instagram (@TheMadrigalSF)
