MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View
Hidden under a lush canopy of foliage, the woodsy, elegant vibe here will have you feeling like you’ve stepped into Napa for the night. This one-time carriage house boasts a cozy brick interior, with a blazing hearth and small bar where friends catch up over the legendary house martini. The covered garden patio, with its light-filtering, canvas roof and lush tangle of vines, is stunning. The kitchen has maintained its impeccable reputation for nearly 20 years thanks to the graceful hand of Chef Suzanne Goin. Meals begin with an addictive bowl of almonds and the namesake olives. Then move on to mains like the market lettuce with roasted beets, a soft egg and creamy burrata; or morel mushroom lasagna tucked with an English pea purée and asparagus batons.
