Riot-Worthy Dish
Wine Enthusiast editors asked America's 100 Best Wine Restaurants of 2013 "which dish would start a riot if it was taken off the menu?" Their riot-worthy dish is…
"The ahi tuna tartare with ancho chili, sesame oil, pine nuts and mint is one of the chef’s most beloved dishes and will remain on the menu indefinitely."

Perfect Pairing
The ahi tuna tartare is electric with Peter Lauer’s 2011 Senior Riesling from the Saar.

Wine Events
The restaurant’s Flashback Fridays is a wines-by-the-glass program that provides guests an opportunity to taste in-demand vintages by exceptional producers. The monthly Hometown Heroes wine program spotlights notable wineries that define the California wine industry.


Wine Enthusiast Magazine announced the third annual issue of America's best wine-centric establishments, and to commemorate the list, WE hosted a rooftop party where we honored this year's recipients and toasted the exploding culture of wine and food.
