  1. Hey Rockwellers I recently returned here as Executive Chef after a long hiatus. It is good to return to the neighborhood. Anyway, I wanted to let people know about an event that we are doing that is near & dear to my heart as my mother just recently passed away due to complications from Alzheimer's. Any support for this cause from the food community would be greatly appreciated. http://act.alz.org/goto/Sonoma_Alzheimers_Fundraiser Thanks Drew Trautmann

Everything is available as a smaller portion to allow groups and individuals to come in and try more things, basically creating their own tasting menus, as always the menu is printed in house, so it will be constantly changing. We will also be offering drink pairings in smaller portions to go with their food choices. Our farm stand is back up again this Friday as well. Thanks.
