Palooza Restaurant in the Works

Former Dolce Lunas gets new life

PaloozaLogo-e1388157653879Catering company owner Jeff Tyler (Hot Dogs from Chicago, Bunslinger, Palooza Catering) has taken over the former Doce Lunas restaurant in Kenwood.

In the works is a gastropub with Chef Chris Hanson (a freelance chef who’s popped up at a number of local events and alum of the Santa Rosa Golf & Country Club) heading the kitchen.

BiteClub’s seen the preliminary menu, and it’s both approachable and nervy, with some of Hanson’s signature carnivorous creations: Savory cannoli , lemon pepper calamari, a beef marrow app, monkfish fish and chips and an ice cream sandwich with both hops and beer in the mix. Opening is slated for spring, but we’ll keep watch for the final date.

  1. Do you still have table tennis on Tuesdays? What time? Can six or 8 women come who are competitive players? We will come on Tuesday, the 28th for dinner and play, what times are good for both?

  2. Hi Jeff,

    As a Chicago native, now Glen Ellen resident for 19 years, I look forward to your opening. I run a commercial laser engraving business in my barn and would love to show you some of the acrylic signage, barrelhead (Lazy Susan’s) leather wine carriers, mugs and glasses, etc that I produce. Best of luck to you!

  3. Are there other restaurant openings? For example, in Bennett Valley, the Caetano family opened up Riccardo’s, which is next door to their other restaurant. Can’t wait to hear about others!
