The Village Pub, Woodside, CA

The Village Pub Restaurant Review

: Since 2001, “The Pub” has ranked among the Peninsula’s best restaurants. The clubby atmosphere of polished dark wood and red velvet attracts ladies-who-lunch and the Sand Hill venture crowd by day, and date-night couples and corporate closers by night. Executive chef Dmitry Elperin's seasonal, contemporary American cuisine has classic French roots. Duck confit is an indulgent lunch staple. Sautéed Monterey abalone in cauliflower mousseline with soft poached egg and truffle cream delivers a trio of earthy flavors rich with the white truffle of the season. (Black and white truffle supplements can bring added luxury to many dishes.) Sweetbreads with poached lobster is a creative and luxuriant take on surf ‘n’ turf. Wine service is attentive and informed, and the world-class international list offers an extensive selection of half-bottles, special format sizes and a spectrum of hard to find gems, including nearly 40 choices from Domaine de la Romanée Conti.
