Chef-owner Russell Moore cooked at Chez Panisse for two decades before opening this restaurant with co-owner Allison Hopelain that focuses on simple, seasonal, straightforward dishes cooked in an enormous, crackling camino (Italian for "fireplace"). The nightly changing menu has only three entrées—each cooked over its own open fire— including one vegetarian option such as eggplant gratin. Everything is made with top-notch ingredients, including local sardines and smelts, grilled lamb and sausage, and Dungeness crab (cooked in the fireplace with rutabagas). Camino is decorated in a Craftsman-meets-refectory style, with brick walls and two long redwood communal tables. A gin-based libation with house-made cherry and hibiscus bitters is among the perfectly crafted, seasonally inspired cocktails poured here.
