Down a very unassuming (and long) street hides Millenium. We went for the tasting menu and matching wine as it was a special meal (a 40th.) The waitress advised against eating the bread (very wisely) and introduced a wonderful wine to accompany our starter. The slight twist was we were both given different taster menus and the chef must have been in a good mood that night as we ended up with a six course instead of the usual five. From blue corn tamale to sweet potato griddle cake finishing with a variety of puddings (hello chocolate ganache cake) a delight from beginning to end. You'll leave purring and happy if not a little heavier!
This restaurant is linked with Green Gulch Farm, a Zen centre and farm which provides organic produce. The restaurant serves outstanding vegetarian haute cuisine. The cookbooks by two of its cooks, Deborah Madison (Greens, Vegetarian Cooking for everyone) and Annie Somerville (Fields of Greens) have been my best friends in the kitchen for many years.
