El Dorado Kitchen

Executive Chef Armando Navarro’s award-winning and locally-loved menu is crafted from Sonoma ingredients that change with the season. Trained under some of the best chefs in the country, including JeanGeorges Vongerichten, Daniel Boulud, Traci Des Jardins and Richard Reddington, Chef Navarro sources the best of Sonoma to create a beautiful menu of options from morning until night. Soups, salads and fresh oysters are among the offerings for lunch and dinner starters and could include dishes such as the Pork Belly & Scallops, Wagyu Beef Carpaccio or Roasted King Trumpet Mushrooms, giving way to main courses of a selection of meat, poultry and fish options including Petaluma Chicken, our signature EDK Burger or King Salmon. A sweet selection of desserts as well as artisan cheeses round out the experience of dining 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 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 juices. Exploration is encouraged and we even offer spirit flights for those who want to delve into their favorite particular spirit such as grappa or brandy. Our bar offers one of the best artisan craft beer selections in all of Sonoma with cult favorites like Stone Brewing’s IPA and local favorite, Lagunitas A Little Sumpin’ Sumpin’.

El Dorado Kitchen is open for breakfast, lunch, Sunday brunch and dinner daily.

Join us in the main dining room, front corner café, on the fig-tree-lined outdoor patio, our cozy bar or in our private dining room.
