El Dorado Kitchen Restaurant Review

: El Dorado Kitchen’s sophisticated-yet-casual attitude pervades the venue and menu. It has become a gathering place for those looking for fun cocktails and approachable fare with a refined touch. Diners sit at a communal table or more intimate seating in the open, natural-light-filled dining room. Popular daytime and warm-evening options include a luxe outdoor lounge complete with cabanas adjacent to the pool. A Sonoma-centric wine list pairs well with many streamlined dishes punctuated proudly with fresh, artisanal ingredients and some interesting twists. Succumb to the pervasive scent of the tempting truffle frites, or to mussels in a rich cream-wine broth accented by tarragon and roasted garlic. For mains, try the Asian-inspired chicken paillard with sesame coleslaw, pickled shiitakes and chiles or the beer-battered fish tacos with pico de gallo and avocado mousse, drizzled in jalapeño vinaigrette. Burger fans will thoroughly enjoy the generous, juicy Angus beef EDK burger topped with blue cheese. End with desserts such as chocolate-crunch tart with salted caramel, fried almonds, ganache or caramel-corn ice cream.
