Fodor's Review

Paper lanterns suspended over wooden tables and polished concrete floors bring rustic elegance to this A-frame restaurant supported by tree-trunk columns. This trendy restaurant has been a favorite for years, and is even more so now that original owner-chef Tish Tomlinson is back on-site overseeing the enticing menu. For starters, try the beet salad with blue cheese and candied walnuts or the tuna tartare with avocado and mango. Expect entrées like seared yellowfin tuna with wasabi aioli or filet mignon with caramelized onions and chimichurri. Adding to the dining experience are refreshing cocktails, chill-out music, and a delightful passion-fruit cheesecake. On Sunday there is a special barbecue buffet.
