Star chef James Syhabout's intricate, unusual, and beautifully balanced creations are showcased at his sparsely appointed, white-on-white Piedmont Avenue restaurant. The prix fixe menu employs locally harvested seasonal ingredients in striking and unique combinations: sweetbreads on a bed of rye berries and allium nectar, say; or Fort Bragg lingcod with toasted fennel, white beans, and seaweed broth; or a goat's milk panna cotta draped in beet-blood orange sorbet and candied pistachios. The food is more memorable than the overall experience, though, especially at these prices. Wine pairings available for an additional stipend.

Hours: Wed.-Sun. 5:30-9:30 p.m.
