The National Park Service (NPS) has issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) to provide commercial food and beverage service through a lease in the Sutro Historic District. This NPS property is currently operated as “Louis Restaurant” located at 902 Point Lobos Avenue in San Francisco, California.

Federal law requires competitive bidding of certain commercial services within national parks. The NPS may not lease property for commercial use without issuing a public request for bids or proposals.

Qualified organizations or individuals interested in leasing this NPS property for either a table service or quick service restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and/or dinner, including beer and wine but excluding spirits, may submit proposals to be considered   

An objective of this NPS lease is to have an accessible, safe and functional restaurant facility. This will be fulfilled in part by requiring the lessee to complete real property improvements, including the installation of an accessible unisex restroom and an accessible front entrance, as well as a secondary emergency exit. 

The NPS promotes and supports environmentally sound and sustainable operations throughout the national park system. Specific to this lease, this includes, but is not limited to, environmentally responsible back-of-house operations and integration of sustainable food and beverage options into the menu. 

The term of the lease will be 10 years with an estimated beginning date of October 1, 2010. The lessee will be required to pay the NPS a minimum fair market value rent. Rent proceeds are to support the GGNRA.

Any proposal, including that of the existing Lessee, must be received by the Business Management Division, Golden Gate National Recreation Area, Building 201, Fort Mason, San Francisco, California 94123, no later than May 25, 2010.

A pre-submittal site visit is scheduled for March 24, 2010. Please contact Todd Robertson at to RSVP, or to receive a copy of the RFP.
