After six months of being closed, the San Francisco classic, House of Prime Rib is reopening this month.

In a Facebook post, the restaurant said, “We are very happy to be allowed to reopen. After six months of being closed, it will take us roughly two weeks to get up to full speed. That includes rehiring of employees, proper aging of the beef, and preparing the salad dressing. It takes us 10 days to two weeks to make the base of our salad dressing. Thank you for understanding. We can hardly wait to see you again.”

Steven and Joe Betz said they will update everyone on their sanitary procedures shortly as “The safety of our customers and employees is very important.”

The restaurant, which first opened in 1949, located on Van Ness between Washington and Jackson, started accepting reservations on October 6th and will open approximately two weeks later. However, there has been no official opening date or set number of how many diners will be allowed in the restaurant to follow the 25% capacity with social distancing measures.

If you are a loyal fan, it may be worth calling in now to request a reservation! Enjoy and eat up!
