Had an opportunity to lunch at Tonno Rosso, the italian restaurant on the ground floor of the Hotel Griffon. I wasn't sure what to expect from a hotel restaurant, but I was very impressed. The bread basket had great foccacia and baguette, with a small bowl of cured olives alongside. I was sure this would be good because I had such a hard time choosing what to order. There were at least three appetizers and as many main dishes that I wanted to try. Finally settled on ravioli filled with roasted pork loin, which was surely cooked over the open hearth fire I passed on the way in. The plate arrived with 5 large ravioli in a light arugula pesto sauce and was excellent. My collegue at the table ordered the seared ahi tuna which had an excellent crust.
I don't know much about the hotel, but it looked quite charming, and it's right across the street from the Farmer's Market.
