Taverna Aventine Restaurant Review

: Society insiders Vintage 415 and Gian-Paolo Veronese are behind this Jackson Square restaurant, bar and social club. Focused on elegant, Barbary Coast-style excess and featuring two full bars, Taverna Aventine offers a lunch and dinner menu of Cal-Italian bites (the space is named for Rome's Aventine district) that may be eclipsed by indulgent details such as the private basement "parlor" of personal liquor lockers for members. D├ęcor juxtaposes Gold Rush-era San Francisco (antique maps and photos, maritime elements --- parts of the actual space date back 150 years) with Vintage 415's cutting-edge, modern energy.
