[SB: Los Gatos] Dinner at Manresa

Situated between the Santa Cruz Mountains and coastline, Manresa showcases biodynamic and organic produce from Love Apple Farm, their “kitchen garden” that is literally down the road from the restaurant, as well as other ingredients representative of Northern Californian terroir (even the salt is made in-house from local seawater).

Dishes are French and Japanese influenced and inspired by nature. Chef David Kinch pays homage to others in the international circuit of haute cuisine, serving his version of L'Arpège egg and “into the vegetable garden”, inspired by Michel Bra’s gargouillou, seen in this episode of Iron Chef, where he beats Bobby Flay in battle cabbage. If you were curious, Daniel Patterson and Dominque Crenn also serve forms of gargouillou at Coi and Atelier Crenn, respectively.


Let’s go balls out and get the $185 "seasonal and spontaneous" tasting menu (roughly 15 courses)

Business casual attire please!

I had to put my credit card down to reserve, so add yourself to the waitlist and I will add you on if you have a glowing attendance record.

    This might be too late a dinner for me and still have to drive all the way back into the city on a Sunday night. Maybe another time.

    I really liked Manresa, especially the re-imagined egg dish that's not really an egg. They like to mess with you that way and I thought it was great! Too bad I'll be out of town that day, I'd love to go back.

    You secured a good time! Especially since this is a 4+ hour dinner. I'm going on 7/28, myself, but not till 8 pm. Enjoy!
