MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

This handsome stallion is certainly a feather in the cap of the inviting, if slightly sleepy town of Saratoga. There has been a Plumed Horse in this spot since 1952, though this decade-old iteration is by far the best. The décor inside exudes warmth, first in the fireplace-warmed lounge, then in its stunning dining room, with sleek arched-barrel ceiling. From shimmering Venetian plaster to striking chandeliers that emit a colorful glow, these rich details create a sensational backdrop that is at once elegant and comfortable.

This inventive kitchen team turns out a menu of modern and upscale cooking. Duck consommé, poured tableside and enhanced with meaty mushrooms as well as a bright English pea flan, is as impressive to the eye as it is to the palate. Then locally sourced abalone is finished with XO sauce for a pop of flavor, while the decadent black pepper- and parmesan-soufflé accompanied by a delicate petal of uni is of the dive-right-in variety.

Almond cake with cocoa-nib mousse and orange foam is decadent, but wait until those chocolates arrive. Wheeled over in a glass-domed cart with row-upon-row of treats from Chocolaterie by Angelica, these gems are nothing less than exquisite.
