This award-winning, starred restaurant in a 19th-century, brick-and-timber building always begs the question, what exactly do you get for $248 per person? The answer is a culinary adventure of 18 to 20 courses impeccably prepared by chef Joshua Skenes, who teases from premium ingredients their deepest flavors, mostly using fire, embers, and ash. You might taste Monterey abalone roasted over embers, or fresh fish seared on a log. An extra $248 includes wine pairings by
wine director Mark Bright; cocktails are a new addition, served in glass hand-blown in Japan. This is definitely a unique, splurgy dining experience.
