The Raymond 1886 Restaurant Review

: This cozy restaurant, all that's left of the grand Raymond Hotel from the 1920s, occupies the property’s former caretaker's cottage. The setting --- warming fireplace, high-backed wooden booths, flower- and white linen-topped tables spread through intimate rooms --- is utterly charming. An umbrella-shaded patio is delightful for lunch, brunch or summertime dinners. Executive chef Jon Hung is overseeing the kitchen. Lunch tends toward big salads and burgers, as well as curried chicken. In the evening, a meal might deliver seared salmon or dry-aged rib-eye for two. Brunch presents creative options like horchata griddle cakes and a lobster Benedict with tarragon vanilla hollandaise. The wine list, deep in reds, is an impressive compilation with some pricey big names, but good values are available, too. Bar 1886, hidden in the restaurant, specializes in seasonal, handcrafted cocktails.
