This elegant dining room has evolved into a destination restaurant through its focus on seasonal and locally sourced ingredients. The room is understated, with dark walls and soft lighting, but the food is anything but. Dishes such as the Sonoma Liberty duck breast and confit leg, served with pearl barley "risotto," sweet carrot puree, and maple duck jus, are sophisticated without being fussy. Others, like the sampler of Niman Ranch beef that includes a petite filet mignon,
a skirt steak, and braised pavé beef à la bourguignonne, are pure decadence. The restaurant offers a seasonal tasting menu ($149).
