The Mustard Seed Restaurant Review

: This popular Davis eatery attracts locals and visitors alike with its intimate setting and upscale cuisine. The seasonal menu, which changes weekly, features locally grown produce, sustainable seafood and naturally raised meats. Starters may include smoked salmon carpaccio and country pâté, while mains may include pan-seared ahi, duck breast with huckleberry-brandy glaze, or herb-crusted rack of lamb. Desserts range from a strawberry rhubarb tart to chocolate croissant bread pudding. Eat fireside in the cozy cottage or take your meal on the outdoor garden patio.
