This restaurant within a remodeled 1867 home is a surprise, among surprises. The town, on the coast, reminds you of a seaside resort in the 1950's. A funky town with an old house that has a restaurant. However, once in side, you find that you are sitting down in an updated restaurant with a few other tables, and an attentive and knowledgeable staff, who have each been there for a while. The chef was not formally trained, according to our waiter, but he has fooled everyone with his broad array of dishes that include raw, cooked, and unusual. The menu is preset and price fixed, and wine could be paired with the food for an additional $40 per person. The food ranged from a a small salad with beets and greens on a warm goat's cheese that had been softened to a lovely piece of pacific halibut. The meal began with red carrot juice, obtained from a macerating juicer, in a small glass top iced with a fig sugar on the glass rim. Lovely. The food style and presentation reminded us of a Thomas Keller meal at The French Laundry, however, the price was far less, and the meal had a little more deconstruction. I would highly recommend this place for people who enjoy food, both cooked and raw, and with a chef who is making a presentation to please you. Do not miss this restaurant; make sure you make a reservation, since it is well-booked.
