cocktail menu. Sterry Architecture and Sunnyhills Studio teamed up
for the remodeling of the classic space, providing the restaurant with
an open feel and a sophisticated color palate. Chef David Kinch draws
flavors from French and Catalan regions and uses the freshest
ingredients that are grown on the restaurants on farm, located in
Santa Cruz.
