Though influenced by French and modern Catalan cooking, chef David Kinch thrives on experimental cuisine, mixing up methods of classic technique with culinary deconstruction. His biodynamic vegetables are grown exclusively for the restaurant at a local farm in the nearby Santa Cruz Mountains and harvested each morning for the evening menu. Fans gravitate to the 15- to 20-course seasonal tasting menu of refined, sophisticated bites, priced at $170, doubled with premium wines.
