Cuisine Californian
From 25 USD to 49 USD


This quaint, two-story Victorian with burgundy trim is tucked back from El Camino Real, so pay attention or completely miss the almost hidden entrance. After a warm greeting, you will be led to a seat in one of their cozy interconnecting rooms. Then take the time to peruse Chef Sachin Chopra's superb carte of California-centric Indian fare. A roaring fireplace, soft colors, and modern art are an idyllic backdrop for tasty starters like an oblong, golden-brown bread fritter wrapped around spiced potatoes, cheese, and mushrooms, offered with mint chutney for an authentically light and cooling union. Main courses shine, as in tender, well-seasoned duck breast artistically arranged with chestnut purée, deep green dollops of nasturtium leaf coulis, and berbere-spiced potato gratin. Each element is not just delicious, but a thoughtful and sublime balance of smoky, sweet, and salty flavors. End with the chef's tropically inspired treats, including a glass "snowglobe" of airy lemongrass cake, mango custard, and coconut sorbet, all sealed beneath a white chocolate lid-until it is melted tableside when the server pours a rich orange-lemongrass- and white chocolate-sauce. It's date-night certified!
