Flowers top the tables at this Calistoga mainstay, a delightful stop for lunch or dinner. The seasonal menu might include braised lamb shank with creamy polenta or seared salmon fillet with chive-scallion mashed potatoes, and year-round the grilled Angus-beef burger comes with super-crispy fries and a smoked-onion aioli. Among the homey desserts are a well-executed vanilla-bean crème brûlée and a warm dark-chocolate torte. You can order reasonably priced wines from
the extensive list, or buy a bottle at the attached shop and have it poured at your table.
