Backyard Restaurant Review

: Chef-owners Daniel Kedan and Marianna Gardenhire's neighborhood restaurant emphasizes local fare and features rustic, Mediterranean-inspired California cuisine. Seasonal menus change daily to reflect West Sonoma County's bounty. Family-style fried chicken dinners on Thursday nights are a locals' favorite. Friday and Saturday nights feature live music on the outdoor patio. Picnic bags are a convenient option for those preferring to dine on the go in Russian River Valley's wine country.
