Moving Up in the Zagat Guide

The 2012 San Francisco Bay Area Zagat edition is out, and in the Top Food category Manresa jumped to the number four spot from number 20 last year. Zagat reviewers wrote, “Four-hour” meals filled with “inventions of which Edison would be proud” are turned out by “magician” chef-owner David Kinch at this “elegant”, “experimental” “special-occasion” New American in Los Gatos that takes diners on “an unforgettable journey” via “Japanese-influenced” “tasting menus” featuring his own biodynamic produce; a “synchronized dance” of servers and sommeliers “brings it together” and “it may set you back” some serious coin, but it makes “true foodies’ hearts skip a beat”; P.S. there’s a new cocktail bar and lounge.
