Jason Franey, Culinary Director and Executive Chef of San Francisco Proper, has built his impressive career by making his mark on storied restaurants around the country, including San Francisco’s Campton Place and New York City’s Eleven Madison Park, where he spent six years working as Executive Sous Chef under acclaimed chef Daniel Humm and ushering in a new era of fine dining within Danny Meyer’s hospitality empire. Franey then served as Executive Chef of Seattle’s landmark Canlis Restaurant, helping shape the 60-year-old restaurant into the city’s preeminent food destination. Prior to joining San Francisco Proper, Franey held the post of Executive Chef at Monterey, California’s Restaurant 1833, honored as “Best Restaurant in Monterey” and awarded three-and-a-half stars by revered San Francisco Chronicle restaurant critic Michael Bauer. Franey was named a Food & Wine Best New Chef, as well as the publication’s People’s Best New Chef: Northwest. In 2012, 2013, and 2014, he was a finalist for the James Beard Foundation Award for Best Chef: Northwest, and in 2013, was named one of 161 Relais and Châteaux Grands Chefs in the world.

What is Proper?

Proper began as a feeling, not as an idea. The feeling was something akin to empathy; an acute awareness that despite the current proliferation of “boutique” and “lifestyle” hotels and residences, there were precious few properties designed for and around today’s global creative nomad. Many in our milieu share the same daunting challenge: staying fresh and focused,
energized and inspired—all whilst bouncing between London and Hollywood and Austin and San Francisco and Portland and back again. For them, intuitive service is a given. Mere table stakes. What they need and seek beyond accommodation, even at its most luxurious, is inspiration. From the elevated and often surprising interiors imagined by Kelly Wearstler. From the sense of immersion in, and connection to, the vibrancy of the local culture. From the highly curated amenities. From the inspired collaborations with the city’s best and most innovative chefs and mixologists. From the music and the art. From every detail, every interaction, every moment. This is only Proper. And no one else.
