    2007 Rising Star Peter Rudolph has planted roots at Madera, the lavish one-Michelin star restaurant inside Menlo Park's swanky Rosewood Sand Hill resort, offering new expressions of the sustainable visions we originally tasted with him at Campton Place. The restaurant sources 80 percent of their menu from local farms, much of which Rudolph picks up himself alongside Chef de Cuisine Daniel Gomez Sanchez—a remarkable feat for such a busy hotel restaurant. Sanchez gives an elegant spin to local produce in dishes like his granité of sole with creamy parsnip pain perdu, while Pastry Chef Mellisa Root puts out a stunning menu of desserts in bright colors and delightful textures. Wine Director Paul Mekis seamlessly pulls it all together, pouring refined wine pairings that dance with the cuisine and curating a list that offers something to please every one of his Silicon Valley clientele.

    Recommended Dishes:
  • Matsutaki Bouillon, Abalone, Turnip, Rice, Wakame, and Crispy Rice
  • Granité of Sole, Parsnip Pain Perdu, Caperberries, Lettuce, "Bagna Cauda," Baby Romaine, and Mizuna
