    Cute restaurant in the town of Sonoma. Had a great cheese plate that came with fruits, spiced nuts, and of course, fig. Went well with the delicious rosé!

    This may be one of the best meals I've ever eaten. The duck was perfectly cooked: crispy & tender. Service was outstanding. They also make their own ice cream in house. You must eat here when in Napa.

    Rustic French offerings range from charcuterie to quiche Lorraine. But the kitchen also gets creative with the restaurant's namesake fruit, serving fig "Oreos" stuffed with local chèvre cheese.
