THIS RESTAURANT IS TEMPORARILY CLOSED Applewood Inn Restaurant Restaurant Review

: APPLEWOOD INN RESTAURANT IS CURRENTLY CLOSED FOR RENOVATIONS. Just over the river from the town of Guerneville, tucked into the secluded Applewood Inn, is its rustic-yet-elegant upstairs restaurant, with cozy rock fireplaces and cheerful solarium overlooking a fountain and courtyard. Chef Jamil Peden (Madrona Manor, Scopa, Woodfour) lets the resident garden’s bounty and other local offerings dictate his artful, ingredient-driven menus; the chef’s tasting menu paired with wines is a great way to sample his craft. White corn soup highlights freshly harvested corn against cream, garnished with a dollop of local goat cheese and thinly sliced radish. Green zebra tomatoes with compressed watermelon on a bed of horseradish crème fraîche with puffed wild rice kernels is as delightful to the taste as it is to the eye. Tenderly grilled rib-eye is augmented by the colors and flavors of broccoli purée, black garlic soubise and pea shoots. Finish with delicate panna cotta infused with vanilla hints, on Asian pear purée and wild fennel. The wine program skews Russian River-centric.
