Our Millbrae restaurant's menu, developed by Executive Chef Werner Fankhauser, will offer traditional favorites with a modern twist. Items will complement the Westin Brand’s core values as well as speak to the current dining trends of eating simple, light, fresh fare with a focus on locally sourced ingredients. For breakfast, many dishes are designated as SuperFoodsRx, a program implemented by Starwood Hotels to provide healthy food alternatives on the hotel’s menu. Ingredients rich in nutrients and antioxidants make up dishes like Steel Cut Irish Oatmeal, Smoked Salmon Benedict, and Eggs Chilaquiles. Other options include a Crisp Malted Waffle, Lox and Bagel, and Fried Egg & Turkey Sandwich. Breakfast also features a selection of hand-pressed fruit and vegetable juices. For lunch and dinner, Grill & Vine guests can choose from snacks and starters including Deviled Eggs, Slow Braised Pulled Pork on brioche, and Sweet Potato Bisque. Salads, Sandwiches and Flatbreads include a Curly Kale Caesar Salad, Foraged Mushroom and Bacon Flatbread, and the Grill & Vine Burger. Paying homage to the name of the restaurant, the Simply Grilled dishes include Black Angus NY Strip Steak and Salmon Fillet, while the San Francisco’s Cioppino celebrates the City’s culinary heritage. While the food at our Millbrae restaurant plays a starring role, there is also a wide selection of fresh, artinsanal cocktails, craft beers, and a considerable wine program including organic wines.
A hallmark of the wine program at Grill & Vine is the restaurant’s Enomatic® Wine System, a state-of-the-art wine preservation and serving system that displaces the air in open bottles of wine and preserves it for up to 30 days. This allows for our Millbrae restaurant to serve up to 16 wines at the perfect temperature by the glass that would otherwise need to be sold by the bottle. The Enomatic Wine System is also a visually stunning focal point of the restaurant, with sleek lines and modern appearance. In addition to the Enomatic Wines, Grill & Vine offers a well-rounded list of local and international wines by the bottle.
Other key design features of Grill & Vine will include communal tables as centerpieces, bringing guests together in a vibrant space. A menu board will showcase the daily specials or Chef’s favorite dishes. Lighting and natural colors and finishes set the tone for the atmosphere. Furniture at our Millbrae restaurant will be in shades of greens, greys and purples and a combination of light and dark woods. The overall aesthetic is meant to bring a taste of wine country to The Westin San Francisco Airport.
