Concrete floors and large canvases on the walls lend this restaurant a casual, industrial, and slightly artsy feel. The American cuisine—such as the roasted pork belly with pickled apples or the free-range chicken braised in red wine—is hearty and highly seasoned. Portions are large, so consider sharing if you hope to save room for such desserts as the brownie sundae with house-made ice cream. As you might have guessed from the name, Zinfandel is the drink of choice
here, though Sonoma County's other major varietals show up on the 100-bottle wine list. From Sunday through Thursday, blue-plate specials featuring homey fare (think pot roast and chicken and dumplings) make this place a bargain.
