The Monk’s Kettle Terra Linda to Open in Marin County
Terra Linda, San Rafael, CA – Monk’s Kettle owners Christian Albertson and Nat Cutler have partnered with Giordano Bros. owners Jeff and Allison Jordan to form a new restaurant group.
The group plans to open a second Monk’s Kettle in the San Rafael neighborhood of Terra Linda. The Jordans, who have lived in the neighborhood for nearly a decade, said, “Terra Linda is a community filled with families, schools and businesses and in need of a true ‘public house’. We always felt Monk’s Kettle would be a perfect fit for the neighborhood.”
The partners recently purchased a section of the Terra Linda Shopping Center in which the new Monk’s Kettle will be located, with an expected opening in Summer 2020 in the 4,000 square foot space.
This 100-plus-seat tavern will feature several different seating areas: a dining room with a mix of smaller and larger tables seating 34; a 12-seat bar with community tables seating 24; a lounge in the front windows; a second floor mezzanine which can also host private parties and events; and seating for another 20 outside.
Monk’s Kettle Terra Linda will offer a top-notch craft beer list with the addition of wines and ciders on tap (24 total taps). The from-scratch kitchen program will feature a food menu similar to that of Monk’s San Francisco. Albertson, who lives in neighboring Novato, said, “We plan to expand the menu to cater to the community, with offerings like a “Not For Kids Only Menu”, and will have a take-out station designed for food and drinks to serve the needs of the community’s working families as well as the area’s businesses.”
