From the From the May 2008 Food & Wine Go List
For a long time, Rubicon was best known for its 1,700-bottle wine cellar. Now, it’s also gaining fame for its food, from <a href="/bestnewchefs/?year=2003&chef=B30CCF8C-625C-4A53-8E1DDC7E6D511EFD">Stuart Brioza (an F&W Best New Chef 2003)</a>, whose exciting modern California menu is especially good with the restaurant’s awe-inspiring collection of California Cabs. Even the brilliant desserts from Nicole Krasinski are wine-friendly.
We loved: Dino kale ragù and radishes; Oregon lamb with roasted red grapes; clementine .
Insider tip: The $25 lunch, served on Wednesdays, is a great value.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
