For the wine-lover, this restaurant which combines an extensive wine list with their own retail wine shop and tasting bar should keep the most avid oenophile happy. While its touted as "California-French" cuisine, and that is reflected in some of the Pacific seafood and American paddle fish caviar, its roots are rural French. The menu offers up farm-raised venison and other meats, all expertly sauced and adorned a la francaise in an updated Art Deco environment. Private dining areas are available if discretion is a must. The bargain-seeker will enjoy the lower prices in the bar and lounge, which opens 4p-midnight. - deTraci Regula
