Fodor's Expert Review Bistro 29

$$$ Santa Rosa French Fodor's Choice
Chef Brian Anderson prepares steak frites, cassoulet, duck confit, and sautéed fish with precision at his perky downtown restaurant—rich-red walls, white tile floors, and butcher paper atop linen tablecloths set the mood—but the mixed-greens salad with Dijon vinaigrette best illustrates his understated approach: its local produce bursts with freshness, and the dressing delicately balances its savory and acidic components. Start with escargots or bay scallops with béchamel, finishing with beignets or orange crème brûlée for dessert.
