WHY Yountville foodie elegance in Brentwood.
WHAT Freshness is a fetish here, whether it’s braised sunchokes or perfectly cut shoestring fries from Weiser Farms potatoes. Jeffrey Cerciello, former culinary director of Thomas Keller’s casual dining division, has created an upscale larder featuring dishes (salmon rillettes, poached chicken salad) made with the best local produce alongside top-notch charcuterie, cheese and baked goods. Family-style dinner should be on offer by the time you read this, if they’ve secured a wine license.
WHO Westside trophy wives, hot yoga moms, people who look like they stepped out of Dwell magazine, and movie stars acting like regular folk.
