Gardens of Avila Restaurant Review

: An aura of al fresco dining prevails at this aptly named restaurant, in the main room as well as in the bar area, where lunch is often served. The seasonal and usually organic menu showcases produce from the property’s garden, and from several local food purveyors. Dishes have included a delicate English pea soup with green garlic cream, smoked duck breast with cauliflower purée, and slow-cooked beef short rib with pomegranate reduction. Breakfast ranges from lemon ricotta pancakes to huevos rancheros, while desserts typically present a seasonal fruit option and something chocolate such as a pot de crème. For libations, peruse the good local wine list, or consider a farm-to-glass cocktail from the full bar.
