From My Menu

Chef Lena Kwak reviews Spring lamb ragu at Glen Ellen Star
$$ | Pizza | Modern | American
Glen Ellen
"Lamb ragu with gnocchi, fava beans, and Calabrian chile. Just a wonderful dish packed with flavors, and to be honest, I’d enjoy anything off that entire menu. "
Chef Taylor Boetticher reviews Wood oven roasted vegetables at Glen Ellen Star
$$ | Pizza | Modern | American
Glen Ellen
"The Heirloom baby carrots with oaxacan mole and sesame brittle is just one of the many awesome vegetables they do out of their wood oven. The combination of roasted carrots with mole is one I never would have thought of but works really, really well."
Chef Andrew Wilson reviews Stuffed Squid at Glen Ellen Star
$$ | Pizza | Modern | American
Glen Ellen
"Ari is a very talented chef who creates deceptively simple food in Glen Ellen Star's postage stamp-sized kitchen. If the stuffed squid is on the menu, order it! Extra points for PBR."
Chef Ethan Speizer reviews Roasted corn "elote" at Glen Ellen Star
$$ | Pizza | Modern | American
Glen Ellen
"If there's a perfect dish, this is it. GES's take on elote, perfectly roasted creamy corn, a cloud of cotija, a dash of chili and a squeeze of lime. Flavor bomb like no other. I don't even order and entree - just two of these."
