Four of us had dinner on Monday night. It was great.
The Friday Chronicle has a re-review and give credit to Palmer now being on site for improvements. The food was wonderful -starters included a crab,serrano ham and avocado salad, fois gras and a langostino beignet --my favorite. They still have the rule for the tasting menu --everyone at the table must have it.
But oddly they have a wine dinner which is an amazing bargain at $45.00 and no requirement for the whole table-- three courses --three glasses of wine. The person who orderd it loved it all. I had the kobe beef pot roast and I did think about picking up my plate and licking it. I live in the area and we went a lot when it first opened but it was very noisy and the service sometimes bewildering. The tables are now farther apart and our servers just fine. Other main courses were the lamb loin and the duck and everyone was very happy. They do not charge corkage if you bring Sonoma wines. It was a last minute decision to go and one of our party made a dash to Rochioli for the wines ..
