MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Urbanites seeking an escape from the fray head to this charming inn, nestled in a quiet, woodsy corner of Sonoma, for fine cooking, upscale accommodations or both. Dinner guests will find themselves charmed by the dining room’s soothing colors, rustic-elegant décor, crackling fireplace and numerous intimate nooks—including an enclosed patio. The protein-centric menu reads like an ode to California’s purveyors, and a focus on seasonality is in keeping with the area’s ethos. Unsurprisingly, the results are often rewarding: succulent, perfectly balanced heirloom tomatoes are twirled with crunchy seaweed, briny clams and mirin dressing, while flaky halibut arrives atop a richly flavored fennel-tomato beurre blanc, dotted with corn and huitlacoche pudding. The signature “rabbit, rabbit, rabbit” showcases the kitchen’s creativity, bringing together a confit rabbit leg, an applewood-smoked bacon-wrapped loin and a minuscule rack of chops rounded out with Yukon Gold potatoes and a whole grain mustard-cream sauce. Pair your meal with a bottle from the impressive list of local and European wines. Then complete the seduction with an airy soufflé concealing a treasure of Blenheim apricot preserves.
