The Girl & the Fig
The Girl & the Fig Review
Chef Sondra Bernstein has transformed the historic bar room of the Sonoma Hotel into a hot spot for inventive French cooking. You can always find a dish with the signature figs on the menu, whether it's a fig-and-arugula salad or an aperitif blending sparkling wine with fig liqueur. Also look for duck confit with sweet potato Lyonnaise, a burger with matchstick fries, or wild flounder meunière. The wine list is notable for its emphasis on Rhône varietals, and a counter in the bar area sells artisanal cheese platters for eating here as well as cheese by the pound to go. The indulgent Sunday brunch includes rib-sticking chorizo and eggs, and potato pancakes with smoked salmon, dill crème fraiche, and caviar. On weekend nights the kitchen serves until 11.
