About Russell Moore

Russell Moore is an author and the chef/owner of Camino. After two decades spent working for Alice Waters at Chez Panisse, he opened his own restaurant in 2008. At his restaurant he made it both as simple and as challenging as possible for himself by limiting his one major heat source to a 9-foot-wide wood-burning fireplace, built to his specifications by a local stone mason.

Where I Go Out

At My Venues

Grilled Dungeness Crab with Green Garlic Aioli
Grilled Dungeness Crab with Green Garlic Aioli
$$, Full Bar, New American, Bar, Grand Lake
"While in season, the chef Russell Moore serves the best Dungeness crab in the Bay Area. It's charred on the open wood fire and served with green garlic aioli and whatever vegetable is fresh from a nearby farm. If there is no crab, get anything from the grill; he makes some of the best grilled food near and far. Also try the amazing cocktails."
Boudin blanc

"This is white sausage perfection. Grilled pork leg from the hearth and house sauerkraut on the plate make for sides that are better than most entrées."
