The restaurant offers dinner, with lunch and brunch becoming available in the next few weeks. Jackson is prepared for another shutdown should it happen in California.
“We are very worried about the possibility of a major shutdown that would impact our ability to even serve diners outside,” Jackson said. “While we are gently opening to the public, limiting reservations to assure we are providing the best experience, we are accepting takeaway orders and have preemptively taken considerable care in assuring our packaging is on brand and transports our food safely.”
“Bull & Butterfly is so much more than just a restaurant for us; it’s a labor of love,” Jackson said. “It was created to welcome the community into a safe, warm, comfortable, and inspiring place—founded on humble hospitality—that you want to return to with friends, family, and beyond and feel taken care of. Also, it is a place of gratitude—for the abundance of sustainably farmed and crafted products and produce we have access to, for the staff and the team that brings this concept to life every day, and for the guests that feel like home when they are here.”
The outdoor dining space is decorated with string-light gazebos and a plant-lined patio to allow guests to enjoy a night out, while maintaining social distancing protocols, sanitization, and safety measures.
“Our menu offers a fresh take on the traditional steakhouse fare, with a variety of dishes that are fun to explore and light and easy to return to, day after day,” Jackson said in a statement. “Guests might enjoy a carne asada-style steak served with beans one night, a classic dry-aged rib-eye the next, or opt to go wholly vegetarian on another evening.”
Vegetable and meats will be cooked in a big wood stone grill and a Josper from Spain in the restaurant’s open kitchen.
