The Slanted Door Coming to San Ramon’s City Center
If there was any doubt about how big an impact the City Center Bishop Ranch development would have on the community, it’s gone now—given the recent announcement that chef Charles Phan will open the second location of his nationally renowned The Slanted Door at the San Ramon complex.
The Slanted Door, currently located in San Francisco’s Ferry Building Marketplace, is a destination restaurant that features Vietnamese-inspired cuisine—but don’t get your taste buds too excited quite yet, because the new East Bay locale won’t open until November.
And The Slanted Door is far from the only restaurant coming to the City Center this year. Also expected around the same time are C Casa—a gourmet, eco-friendly taqueria with locations in Napa and Public Market Emeryville; MIXT, which will offer locally sourced salads, grain bowls, and market plates; and Mendocino Farms, a Southern California chain that focuses on sandwiches and salads.
