Foodies come to worship here at the church of Alice Waters, the inventor of California cuisine. It’s in a lovely Arts and Crafts house in the Gourmet Ghetto, and you can choose to pull all the stops with a prix-fixe meal downstairs, or go less expensive and a tad less formal in the cafe upstairs. Reservations accepted one month ahead.

The restaurant is as good and popular as it ever was, and despite its fame, the place has retained a welcoming atmosphere.
