Experimental Gastronomy debuts this Sunday!

Chef David Kinch is proud to be part of the US premiere of “Experimental Gastronomy” at the Montalvo Arts Center in Saratoga this Sunday, September 25. Join Chef Kinch along with chefs Corey Lee and Daniel Patterson as they collaborate to create a plant-based menu presented alongside dishes and cutlery crafted by some of the country’s top decorative artists. “Experimental Gastronomy” was founded by Martin Kullik and Jouw Wijnsma of the Dutch creative collective Steinbeisser. They have spent the last four years organizing avant-garde culinary evenings in Amsterdam, Berlin, Frankfurt, and Switzerland. Each is a unique experience where celebrated chefs and international artists come together to realize a one-of-a-kind creative, gastronomic happening. For tickets and more information, click here.

Manresa welcomes a new member of the wine team!

Everyone at Manresa is extremely happy to welcome Pier-Alexis Soulière, MS to the front of house staff! Pier joins the team as Sommelier just a few weeks after passing his Master Sommelier exams in London, and makes Manresa one of the few restaurants in the world to have two Master Sommeliers working the floor each night. Pier has worked in the United States and London in Michelin-starred restaurants, including The Modern and Dinner by Heston Blumenthal, and will be a key member of the team as we continue to improve the wine experience at Manresa. Pier and I look forward to opening the cellar for you the next time you visit the restaurant. —Jim Rollston, MS
Wine Director

Are you ready for some football?

Football viewing is best over brunch, beer, and cocktails, which means The Bywater is the place to pull up a seat this football season. Join the team inside or on the patio every Sunday starting at 10am to watch your favorite teams all day long. Snag a seat now and make a reservation!

Fall finds at Manresa Bread

The Manresa Bread team celebrates fall, rolling out new pastries including Delicata squash, bacon and onion Danishes, pear and vanilla Danishes, and honey caramel morning buns starting October 1. Stay tuned for news on the completion of the Los Gatos expansion (which features a full-service coffee program), new menu items, and more by following Manresa Bread on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
