Everyone had a fabulous time last Thursday for the official opening of Le Club, the chic new restaurant at 1250 Jones, owned by Todd Traina and Gina Milano (shown above.) The atmosphere, the design, the service and the location (at the tippy-tippy-top of Nob Hill) are absolutely superb. J’adore Le Club!
Danielle Steel chats with Dede Wilsey, as Howard and Gretchen Leach smile for Drew Altizer’s lens.
Gina Milano did most of interior design work herself, creating a style that I would describe as a hip version of Old World San Francisco. There are classic wing chairs, for instance, but they’re upholstered in shiny black crocodile to give them a sleek, glamorous, modern edge.

With parking difficult in the neighborhood, Le Club offers valet service and (coolest of all) a town car to pick you up and take you to the restaurant. The small private rooms are also great for those who are always on the lookout for places to hold events.
Here are more of the opening night visitors.
