Award-winning Manresa proves day after day that its long history of excellence continues. This crown jewel of California cuisine hosts a Los Gatos patronage eager to sample James Beard award-winning chef/proprietor David Kinch's French-inspired, Spanish-flaired seasonal tasting menus. Many of the fruits and vegetables, including heirloom tomatoes, are grown at nearby Love Apple Farm.

"David Kinch's immense talent has matured with the garden. It not only inspires his unique fixed-price menu at this four-star restaurant, but working with the nearby Love Apple Farms, the plantings have grown from 2 to 11 acres. One signature dish is the ever-changing Into the Vegetable Garden, incorporating seasonal plants - seeds, roots, stems, flowers and leaves arranged in edible 'dirt.'"
