Fodor's Expert Review Crocodile French Cuisine

$$ Petaluma French
Chef Michael Dotson aims to convey a sense of place—Sonoma County—through a French lens with seasonally changing dishes that might include escargot and steak frites but also ahi tuna confit à la Niçoise or a green-curry lentil galette. Dotson's sommelier-wife, Moira Beveridge, selects "fun and quirky" beers, ales, ciders, and wines and oversees their tall-ceilinged corner storefront, whose wooden tables and bar provide a rustic counterpoint to the otherwise industrial look.
