Dining at Revival is an all-over sensory experience. Located on a pretty stretch of the Russian River in Guerneville, California, Revival Restaurant is part of Applewood Inn, a lovely bed and breakfast that combines the charm of a 1922 farmhouse with contemporary comforts. Chickens range freely on the property, which also includes a culinary garden and orchards. And just up the road are some of the area’s finest wineries. If ever a setting was made for fine dining, this is it.
Revival exudes a warm and welcoming ambiance with dark woods, deep rich colors and a fireplace: a perfect setting for memorable evenings. The restaurant is serious about its food-to-table philosophy, choosing ingredients from its own garden, and sourcing local meats, produce, and wine from small growers and producers who excel at their craft. Using the freshest ingredients possible, even the humblest dish is sublime. Case in point, cast-iron seared Broccoli di Ciccio, served with velvety aioli made with fermented garlic and herb toasted breadcrumbs.
The recent entrée selection included a delicious Five Dot Ranch Flat Iron Steak accompanied by heirloom broccoli, sprouted grains and bagna cauda; and Marin South Bar halibut served with potato, Dutch cabbage and sea lettuces.
As expected Revival has a wonderful wine selection, and is also known for it’s tasty Vermouth cocktails. Plan to linger here, the food and setting are worthy of enjoying fully.
