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 on Mondays). What they will get is a matter of chance, but rest assured it will feature only peak-season produce—from the fresh peas, asparagus and black truffle in a spring risotto, to the sweet corn and squash blossoms served with a summer preparation of pork loin. Seeking more freedom of choice? Head to the upstairs café, which offers meals á la carte.
