TEL: (707) 963-7088

Within the narrow confines of Cook, owner-chef Jude Wilmoth, who previously helmed the kitchen at St. Helena's Tra Vigne, prepares casual Northern Italian cuisine using fresh, locally sourced ingredients. The bright white walls of the snug space—it features only 31 seats, including a diner-style, walk-ins-only counter near the entrance—contrast the dark wood floors, and unique decorative elements like the sculptured animal head, rustic tin mirror, and gourd-shaped pendant lights give the dining room a fun, quirky edge. Dishes like Cornish game hen with butternut squash and braised short ribs with scallion-whipped potatoes find their way onto Wilmoth’s seasonal menu, and the concise wine list focuses on focuses mainly on local vintners.

Insider Tip:

Cook's mixologists craft cocktails like Rudy's Revenge, a unique take on the Old Fashioned featuring Woodford Reserve bourbon, muddled orange, Angostura bitters, and Fabbri Amarena cherries.
