New Restaurant…

If you haven’t heard, there’s a new restaurant in Glen Ellen, Aventine.  With rustic Italian fare, this place is delightful.  Into cocktails?  Try their take on the Manhattan.  It has a floral beginning and a smooth finish.  Or try the salumi platter covered in artisan and house made salumis.  The historic setting at the Grist Mill (which I wrote about here) isn’t bad either.  In fact, I totally adore how the current restaurant embraces the old woodwork and has added additional touches that literally look authentic.  For example, the italian pizza oven and the gorgeous metal chandelier add a nice layer of depth.

All in all Aventine is a lovely addition to this gem of a town.
