More than 40 years after she served her first prix fixe dinner (back then, the price was $3.95), Alice Waters and her 100-plus staff are still doing simple magic with the season’s best ingredients. Meals in the Craftsman-style dining room are all about showcasing these ingredients. Reservations are essential, and you can book up to one calendar month ahead. The menu changes daily. A wide-ranging wine list offers interesting bottles from California and Europe. Dinner Mon.–Sat.
