Mirabelle Restaurant Restaurant Review

: A refined restaurant in a quaint little inn, Mirabelle mirrors its hometown of Solvang. European elegance meshes with modern wine country standards, and the room is designed in the French-country style. Chef Norbert Schulz’s menu shifts according to the seasons, available ingredients and his own culinary whims. Likewise, his business partner, restaurateur Brigitte Guehr, presides over the wine list with an artistic hand. A rare selection of older vintages from Napa, Sonoma and France is offered, in addition to Santa Barbara County’s finest labels. A three-course tasting menu may pair a goat cheese-stuffed double lamp chop with an ’89 Napa Valley Cabernet; first though, you’d be served a local Chardonnay with Maine lobster tail wrapped in cabbage and drizzled with tarragon sauce. (Said lobster is also worked into an upmarket mac ‘n’ cheese with white truffle butter.) Hearty duck ravioli is prepared with porcini mushrooms, while the cool flavors of basil and pine nuts pair up with white sea bass fresh from the local waters. With fewer than a dozen tables, patrons are advised to make reservations.
