Cuisine: New American
Its MO: Polished Americana
An artisan’s dream and about as quintessentially Californian as you can get. It’s green (LEED certified!), beautifully designed, and serves farm-fresh food. On the eco front, the space is a converted industrial loft and the tables and chairs were handmade from reclaimed wine barrels by local designers. We also appreciate the little touches that went into making the outdoor patio as lovely as it is, like a water fountain to drown out any traffic sounds and ultra-modern, raised planting beds.
