I’ve dined at [email protected] a few times in the past (for dinner and for afternoon tea) and aside from the delicious fare, I’ve very much enjoyed the atmosphere of the restaurant.

Whether you’re looking for a great pre-flight meal or wanting to pretend like you’re about to go somewhere great (like me as a local), [email protected] is a great place for a meal.

This time around, I was hosted at [email protected] for dinner and had the opportunity to follow Chef Ruth Wigman at the restaurant’s open kitchen as she crafts these beautiful and mouthwatering dishes.

To start, Chef Ruth prepared a beautiful platter featuring house-cured Pacific salmon with Northern Divine Caviar; Chef’s Creek Oysters with pickled plum and horseradish mignonette; traditional Oysters Rockefeller; and diver scallops with pickled blueberry and bee pollen.

I also saw the behind-the-scenes preparation of the Herbed Rack of Lamb with smoked eggplant, grilled broccolini, dauphinoise potato and thyme jus.

I really enjoyed [email protected]’s elevated yet approachable fare in a friendly, inviting environment. It’s a fun place to dine and a great place to plane watch. During the dinner, I daydreamed about my next travel destination.
