Sunday, December 6
I just learned that the lovely Restaurant Eloise in Sebastopol closed on Nov 29. I only had the pleasure of dining there once for a family celebration. We were all smitten with every aspect -- it was so elegant and yet down to earth.
I regret not posting this delicious memory sooner. Here’s my ode to the lovely Eloise:
Perfectly spicy, marinated Monterey Bay sardines with diced avocado, scallion and black sesame.
These clams were a bowl of spicy deliciousness.
Pillowy, ricotta & Swiss chard gnocchi with sage brown butter that just melted in my mouth.
A refreshing escarole salad with walnuts, red onion and shaved pecorino.
To finish, a perfectly soft vanilla panna cotta with the sweetest strawberries and a sprinkling of candied orange peel.
Should the super-talented chef/owners, Eric Korsh & Genevra Iverson, open another place anywhere near as delightful as Eloise, I will be sure to hustle on over and report back tout de suite!
Thank you to everyone at Restaurant Eloise for the delectable food and fond memories.
