Wine and fine food is a matched pair, like Cagney and Lacey or Wayne Gretzky and the only thing people remember about hockey. Slapstick your face with flavor using today's deal: for $37, you get $75 worth of wine country cuisine and fine wine at John Ash & Co in Santa Rosa.
Situated at the Vintners Inn beside 92 acres of vineyard, John Ash & Co. takes pride in its ability to marry a meal's delicate flavors with the most complementary wine varietals. The upscale eatery, a 2010 Open Table Diner's Choice winner, features homegrown fruits, vegetables, and herbs from on-site gardens, as well as a long list of locally sourced ingredients that, much like the four cardinal directions, change from season to season. The dinner menu offers delectable main courses, such as kabocha pumpkin ravioli spiked with pickled mushrooms and parmesan ($16) or pan-seared sturgeon served with roasted red beets ($34), and lunchers can snack on pizza margherita ($13) or fill their emptiest stomach with nine ounces of New York steak ($21).
John Ash & Co.'s knowledgeable staff will happily recommend a wine pairing from among the 600 local and international varieties available in the restaurant, or invite guests to sample three options with a wine flight of two-ounce pours. If mini-tastes strike your food fancy an appetizing blow, the menu boasts small plate portions that make for nibble-friendly mixing and matching.
Yelpers give John Ash and Co. an average of 3.5 stars; TripAdvisors give it an average of four owl eyes and name it one of the top ten restaurants in Santa Rosa.
