A charming, family run restaurant with cotton-candy clouds painted on sky-blue walls, chef Roland Passot serves generous portions of astoundingly good food.
You simply can't err when you order from Passot's exuberant but disciplined menu. It changes often, but memorable starters have included wonderful foie-gras plates and unforgettable lobster salad with spicy mango vinaigrette. Recent main courses have included a roti of quail and squab, stuffed with wild mushrooms and wrapped in crispy potato strings, and tournedos of roasted salmon served with a puree of sweet onions and Pinot Noir sauce. The "Discovery" tasting menu and sample as many dishes as possible.
The owner's roots surface in the decidedly Franco-California wine list. Choose from deep selection of excellent reds from Bordeaux or opt for one of the "discovery wines" from lesser-known wine regions of Australia and Chile.
To accommodate the growing number of vegetarians, Passot has thoughtfully included a separate Vegetable Lover's Menu. Reservations are strongly recommended, especially on weekends.
