Michael Wild’s standard-bearing Cal-Med destination is as essential as when it opened 35 years ago. The frequently changing seasonal menu might include house-made lemon pasta with grilled prawns and blistered cherry tomatoes; an enormous, juicy rack of pork with braised romano beans; or the house specialty, duck, served grilled, smoked, or with its liver transformed into a light, creamy flan. Get the luscious berry pudding for dessert. Comfy setting in a reconfigured Piedmont Craftsman home.
