A new restaurant is set to beautify a vacant triangular parcel prominently located at San Pablo and Macdonald avenues in Richmond.

Last week, the Richmond Planning Commission unanimously approved a conditional use permit allowing a full-service restaurant called Rosie’s Roost to serve alcohol to customers when it opens at 12056 San Pablo Ave., a long-vacant, eyesore of a building previously occupied by restaurant businesses.

Rosie’s Roost’s operator, Shiryn Shalileh, plans to serve “meal offerings such as rotisserie chicken and pizza” along with beer, wine and distilled spirits from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m., according to city documents.

Proposed building improvements include new windows, doors, signage and tiles.

“It’s predominantly an eating establishment,” Shalileh told planning commissioners, “but there’s really a lack of places to go out and get a cocktail in a safe and inviting environment in the area.”

Shalileh said she also plans to put in bike racks, and agreed to a Planning Commission condition to find spots to plant trees around the restaurant.

Here are the planned improvements for the building as appearing it city documents:


  1. Hallelujah, a warm color palette! Now if we can only get the 24 hr fitness across the street to lose the “cheap landlord grey” paint and choose something more cheerful as well.
    I wish them success with the restaurant. They should get a medal from the city if only for fixing up the old building, something none of the previous businesses bothered to do.

  2. Just as a datapoint, the gym nearby is not a 24 Hour Fitness, though there is one at Hilltop Mall. I believe the gym near this restaurant is a Planet Fitness.
