Opening this Friday January 21st for dinner is Dominique Crenn’s ~ATELIER CRENN~, and guests will have a chance to check out the Euro-spare interior (including bare teak tables) by designer Nancy Nielsen (Grub Street has a slideshow here and Eater does here). As I noted last week, here’s a link to a PDF of the winter menu, which is offered at $59 for a three-course meal, and $95 for the chef’s tasting menu. Chef Dominique Crenn is working closely with Gouge Eye Farm in Pleasant Grove ranch for produce; you can read more about the partnership here. And yes, there will be peacock on the menu. Along with ground cherries, and other exotics. The wine list will feature limited-production, organic, and biodynamic wines including approximately 35 bottles, primarily French, Italian, and California wines. Additional players are managing partner/owner Michele Astorian, GM and wine director Akop Paronyan, and pastry chef Juan Contreras. Open for dinner Tue-Sat.
