More San Francisco players moving north: The team behind .S.F's CIRCA, The Cosmopolitan and Parlor Bar plan to open The Social Club, in Petaluma this July.

Taking over the vacated Pazzo space at 132 Keller St., executive chef Steven Levine will create a rustic American menu around a wood-fired oven and grill expected to include smoked short ribs, grilled Angus hangar steak, Prather Ranch burgers and Sonoma fried chicken. Prices will range from $5 to $24. Levine garnered critical acclaim for The Cosmopolitan and was the former chef of Freestyle in Sonoma. Owners are currently looking for a chef de cuisine.

Big names attached include restaurateur Mick Suverkrubbe, designer Lauren Germia ((Blackbird, Churchill, Citizens Band), a beverage program developed by Alex Fox (Bar Tartine, Gary Danko and Myth) and GM Damion Wallace (Wexler's, Bistro Aix, Gary Danko and Myth).

The bar menu will include 50 bottled craft beers, single malt whiskeys, scotches and bourbons, along with an affordable wine list. Outdoor fire-pits and a large patio are a key outdoor feature planned for the restaurant.
