New Dining Experience, Sand Hill Sundeck, Brings Elevated and Gourmet Offerings to Menlo Park

A restaurant dining area


The latest restaurant addition to DivcoWest’s Sand Hill Collection  
pays homage to the past and offers a fusion of signature northern Californian dishes,  
reimagined pizza and deli classics, and sun-filled happy hours. 


Menlo Park, CA (July 7, 2024)San Francisco-based DivcoWest, a DivCore Capital Company, in partnership with Bon Appétit Management Company, is proud to announce the opening of Sand Hill Sundeck, a new multi-faceted restaurant concept located in the heart of The Ranch campus within the Sand Hill Collection (“SHC”). Set high on the crest of Sand Hill Road, and unlike any other restaurant in the area, the Sand Hill Sundeck pays tribute to the original Sundeck restaurant on Sand Hill Road by Tom Ford, a central figure in the emergence of Sand Hill Road as the center of Silicon Valley investment capital, and delivers a modern and sophisticated dining experience. Guests at Sand Hill Sundeck will experience a new menu that draws inspiration from the classic traditions of an East Coast delicatessen with San Francisco’s iconic Italian North Beach favorites. 

Originally a power lunch spot for entrepreneurs and venture capitalists, the reimagined Sand Hill Sundeck today delivers three distinct experiences in the same premier location at 3000 Sand Hill Road including a full-service modern eatery with an elevated lunch menu drawing inspiration from the Bay Area’s seasonal ingredients, a gourmet deli and boutique market for on-the-go options, and for those who want to enjoy the beautiful California weather, a large sundeck that will be the perfect spot for happy hours, lunches to go, and social gatherings.  

As you enter Sand Hill Sundeck you are greeted by a laid back, yet upscale, New York deli style counter and market with California affluence where you can order to go artisanal sandwiches made with premium meats and cheeses, hand-tossed pizzas, farm-to-table composed salads, and gourmet goods. The interior seamlessly makes its way to a seated dine-in area touting modern luxury and offers an ideal place for business lunches and casual get togethers with homemade pastas and pizzas, thoughtfully composed sandwiches, small plates, and more. The spacious outdoor deck, its namesake, welcomes a relaxed vibe with a fire pit and seating areas to soak up the Bay Area sunshine and enjoy a variety of signature dishes, craft beers, and a selection of fine wines.

“We’re excited to bring this new concept to Menlo Park,” said DivcoWest’s Associate Director of Brand Experience, Marina Encinias. “The Sundeck has a great history and we wanted to preserve that while creating a new and special space where people could gather for any occasion, whether it’s a private business lunch, a quick snack, or a leisurely happy hour with friends. This creative combination of offerings is unique to the area and positions the Sand Hill Sundeck at SHC as a sought-after destination for those near and far.” 

DivcoWest has once again partnered with the award-winning food service provider, Bon Appétit Management Company, and Culinary Director Nicolai Tuban, who also oversees culinary operations at Sand Hill Kitchenat SHC, to deliver another great offering within the Sand Hill Collection. Together, the teams developed the culinary vision for the Sand Hill Sundeck, inspired by the variety and nostalgia of the NY market deli experience and the chill California vibe of the outdoors.  

“What I want to bring to Sand Hill Road with the Sand Hill Sundeck is that delicious, exploratory energy of the deli while using the world’s pantry in a really creative way,” says Tuban. “I want you to be able to see the ingredients and what we’re doing, want you to be able to see the chefs cooking on the line, want you to see people slicing prosciutto. Then you can take that perfect creation out to the patio and enjoy it in the incomparable California sun. The Sand Hill Sundeck is a celebration of the Bay Area, from a Bay Area guy.” 

The fresh and innovative menu will feature composed salads, sandwiches, house-made pastas & pizzas, and farm-to-fork entrées, including reimagined classic deli favorites including: 

House-made Pastrami with western Chinese spice, hot mustard, on rye
As a Reuben with Swiss, carrot kraut & black garlic Russian dressing
