On Sep. 30, 2022, Tenderheart began “pushing out plates of sweet and sour quail, corn agnolotti, and lionhead meatballs on the ground floor of the new LINE SF hotel, perched on the tip of the wedge where Market and Turk streets meet,” reports Eater.
“The menu comes from Chef Joe Hou, who’s overseeing the food across all the hotel’s outlets. For Tenderheart, the chef says he drew inspiration from both Northern California’s bountiful local ingredients and his identity as a first-generation Chinese American.
“Tenderheart will begin serving breakfast, happy hour, and dinner Friday and is one of the hotel’s first food and beverage outlets to open. The all-day restaurant offers both indoor and outdoor seating on a small patio off Turk Street.”
Accessible by both Turk and Market Streets, Tenderheart lives between the pulse of Market Street and the grit of the historic Tenderloin neighborhood at 970 Market St.
