Since opening its doors in 2007 in the beautiful Laurel Heights neighborhood, Spruce has been a coveted institution in the San Francisco restaurant scene. Honors include one highly coveted Michelin star 2011-2015, three and half stars from the San Francisco Chronicle, in addition to numerous years of recognition from Wine Spectator for their wine list. About 80 percent of the produce on the menu comes from SMIP Ranch, a private five-acre farm located in the hills above Woodside that grows vegetables, herbs, and other specialty crops exclusively for Bacchus Management Group’s family of restaurants. Bacchus Management Group’s properties also include The Villiage Pub and The Villiage Bakery in Woodside and The Saratoga in San Francisco. Big Rock invested in Spruce in 2007.
