The restaurant, which will serve the hotel as well as the public, will be a casual, "modern gastropub," said James Bosco, an investment associate with firm Broadreach Capital Partners, which is building the hotel with partner Rockwood Capital.

The same team behind the luxury Rosewood Sand Hill hotel in Menlo Park and its Michelin-starred restaurant Madera is designing the Ameswell. The Ameswell restaurant will be more casual than Madera (no Michelin ambitions, Bosco said).
"Madera is a place where you go to for celebratory events or one-off dinners. We want the Ameswell Hotel restaurant to be a place where local residents and local office workers will come multiple times a week," he said. "We want it to be a neighborhood place where people come back again and again."

The restaurant, which has yet to be named, will serve "healthy, locally sourced fare at accessible prices," Bosco said. The restaurant will have an indoor/outdoor feel, with two 16 by 10-foot tilt-up doors that can open onto a 2.5-acre outdoor space in front of the hotel. Outside, there will be seating, fire pits, a bocce ball court and an airstream trailer that serves cocktails, beer and wine.
The restaurant and 255-room hotel are slated to open in July 2020.
