Fodor's Expert Review Bar Crenn

$$$ Cow Hollow French
Dominique Crenn’s sumptuous salon decked out with fur-draped bar stools, chandeliers, and lush velvet drapes is really a bar only in name. Yes, there's a bar pouring outstanding wines and it’s possible to graze on warm gougères (savory cheese puffs) and oysters. Its forte, though, is the petite haute gastronomic French menu available as a tasting menu or à la carte. Low tables make eating properly a challenge and your credit card will take a hit, but take it for what it is and it’s a magnificent way to spend an evening.
