MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

A legendary address among the foodie set, Alice Waters’ Arts and Crafts bungalow continues to flourish as the Bay Area’s temple of Californian cuisine. The talented team of chefs here work their magic in a gleaming open kitchen that is set at the very back of the dining room and served by an aromatic wood-burning oven.

Diners are privy to one nightly fixed menu of four rotating courses (three vegetable-centric on Mondays). It is a matter of chance, but rest assured the dishes will feature peak-season produce—from fresh peas, asparagus and black truffle in a spring risotto, to sweet corn and squash blossoms served with a summer preparation of pork loin.
