Executive Chef Armando Navarro’s award-winning and locally-loved menu is crafted from Sonoma ingredients that change with the seasons. Trained under some of the best chefs in the country, including Jean-Georges Vongerichten, Daniel Boulud, Traci Des Jardins and Richard Reddington, Chef Navarro sources the best of the region to create a beautiful menu of options from morning ’til night.
Fresh oysters and seafood, specialty Wagyu beef, pork, local, farm-raised chicken and seasonal fruits and vegetables headline our daily custom menus. A sweet selection of desserts, artisan cheeses, after-dinner cocktails, and digestifs round out the superb dining experience at El Dorado Kitchen.
Heavily tilted toward local Sonoma and Napa wineries, the robust wine list is a virtual tour through California wine country and includes more than 200 hand-picked selections, with additional international wines from France, Italy, Australia, and Spain. We also strive to seek out and showcase wineries that promote organic and biodynamic agriculture.
Signature cocktails are made with passion and a sense of humor, using only the best spirits and fresh juice infusions. Exploration is encouraged, and we even offer spirit flights for those who want to delve into their favorites, such as grappa or brandy. Our bar offers one of the best artisan craft beer selections in all of Sonoma.
El Dorado Kitchen is open daily for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and Sunday for brunch.
Join us in the main dining room, front corner café, on the tree-lined outdoor patio, our cozy bar, or in our private dining room.
