Read all about the planning of the expansive remodel of K&L Bistro –

“Longtime fans of K&L Bistro will be happy to know that this consistently satisfying Sebastopol restaurant is planning to expand, both in size and scope, in 2014….

Lucas is very excited to transform the original space into a full bar, with a raw bar for oysters in a glass enclosure at the entrance. “We’ll have six to eight beers on tap, a full liquor bar and sexy bar stools from Harrington on Valencia Street in San Francisco, a whimsical brasserie-style bar menu and a TV.”

The separation of the bar and new dining area is an important element for Lucas. He’s inviting a new clientele, who are looking for a livelier atmosphere for cocktails, in the bar, while still making sure to consider the needs of his current and loyal patrons for a quiet and relaxed place to dine.
