Andrew's love affair with food and drink
began at an Atlanta pizzeria 8 years ago.
A 2012 move to San Francisco, and a job at 15 Romolo, offered Meltzer
the opportunity to master classic cocktails and hospitality. At Romolo, Andrew manages the bar and takes a
lead role in developing seasonal cocktail menus. He is a naturally competitive bartender, with
a flair for technique and an enthusiastic stage presence. Andrew is the Vice President of the US
Bartenders’ Guild, San Francisco Chapter, where he offers his community
opportunities to learn, taste, travel, and connect. Andrew preaches about great service first and
quality drinks second, and is excited to watch the pendulum of bartending swing
back towards hospitality and guest experiences.
A huge fan of tiki cocktails and spirit-forward whiskey drinks, you'll
find Andrew drinking Daiquiris and Manhattans.
