Wednesday, April 06, 2011
Santé, the fine dining room at the Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn & Spa, received four bright stars on Michael Bauer’s (San Francisco Chronicle) coveted “Top 100 Bay Area Restaurants List,” which was published earlier this week. Bauer shares, “….chefs continue to be very ingredient-based and have built a cuisine that reflects the region; it’s a style that’s hard to duplicate anywhere else.”
Earlier this Santé was also graced with the coveted Michelin star for the second consecutive year in the current Michelin Guide San Francisco, Bay Area & Wine Country 2011- internationally recognized as the preeminent culinary guide.
Santé has earned a national reputation for outstanding food. Literally meaning “to your health,” the restaurant is a celebration of innovative California cuisine and good taste. Guests enjoy a seasonal menu, in a warm and casual yet stylish setting. Designed to exude the California wine country experience, Chef Andrew Cain showcases the region’s abundant local products and world-famous wines. The menu reflects a commitment to sourcing ingredients locally and organically. The restaurant's Sonoma-centric wine list features boutique, limited production varietals and perfect pairings to complement Chef Cain’s works.
The lauded dining room is a recipient of multiple designations including those bestowed by Wine Spectator, AAA Four Diamond, and Zagat.
“This sought after accolade is renowned as a culinary ‘who's who’,” boasts Executive Chef Bruno Tison. “Santé’s, Chef de Cuisine, Andrew Cain and his culinary brigade work hard to create inventive, original flavors -this group of professionals is truly committed to providing the very best Wine Country has to offer.”
