Dinner here last night after a long day of schlepping - 101 is a fucking nightmare on weekend afternoons, but that's another story.

 

Very earnest, good food. Lots of local stuff, a bunch of it raw even. Sort of like the Nordic manifesto, Sonoma/wine country style.

 

Chang would no doubt have loved this rabbit terrrine special...

I would have loved it more had the terrine been a literal hunk of terrine, instead of smeared on the plate under all that other stuff from someone's lawn, a la Wylie and the pub cheese thing at Alder, but it was tasty nonetheless.

 

Wild King salmon tartare was a great dish. Simply roasted Santa Barbara spot prawns always hit the spot for us. And my duck leg over a fantastic mole with assorted roasted peppers was a winner, aong with Sig Eater's lamb shoulder and fabulous chick peas.

 

Worth a stop, certainly if in Sonoma.

LOL. Looks good to me. What's not to like about rabbit pâté with figs, wild(ish) greens, what looks like pickled mustard serds...

That looks like a great presentation.  Did you have bread with that?

After I asked for bread, two delicious breads were brought over with olive oil. And they magically appeared on the check for $4.

Only a little weird serving terrine sans bread, but not in Sonoma evidently.

And yes, voyager - pickled mustard seeds and maitake mushrooms as well.

You don't have to put charcuterie on bread. I eat rillette by spoon out of the container when no one is looking. Pate goes well with a fork of greens and figs and shrooms and mustard seeds.

Oh, i can understand a hunk of pate with a fork of greens, etc.  But that pate was smeared on the plate, and to my taste was better smeared on bread.

SHED has been closed for a while now, the whole building being for sale. It's a great space, so anyone with $16mm, step right up!

You can make back the purchase price through wine markups!

We actually split a pairing, and a few glasses were comped as well.

 

I don't know how one would be able to walk out of the place, after consuming a whole meal AND a full pairing - by my count, 9 glasses of wine (well, one sake) and a welcome glass of bubbly. 

 

I heard some good stories about purchases of wines like DRCs et al., as well as people brining in their own crazy wines. And not finishing bottles, offering them to staff.
