Kenwood Restaurant

I ate at Kenwood restaurant with my wife last night and was underwhelmed. We started off with their mussels, which were fine but not outstanding in any way. We then split the burger, which was underwhelming for $13 and average fries, and the sweetbreads, which were good, but not great. This is the first time that I moved to the Bay Area from Durham, NC, that I was missing the Durham chow!! Magnolia grill crushes Kenwood Restaurant, for the same prices!

We did have some good things in the area: We stayed at the Gaige House Inn in Glen Ellen and they had a blow your socks off breakfast for $15 each. (I think you have to stay there to enjoy it).

We then had lunch at the Girl and the Fig which has had many raves on these boards, and it lived up to its reputation: fantastic and half the price of Kenwood.

Next time I am in Glen Ellen I will try the G&F's sibling The Fig Cafe in town.
