I recently dined a Jole, a fairly new restaurant on Lincoln in Calistoga (jolerestaurant.com). The restaurant is on the bottom floor of the Mount View Hotel, next to Bar Vino. The menu is designed as a create your own tasting menu, with appetizer size portions. As you enter the from Lincoln you walk through the lobby of the Mount View hotel and to the left double doors will lead you into the restaurant. Modern in design with about forty four seats, the dining room is welcoming. My guest and I started with the Corn and Zucchini Soup and Steak Tartare and eggs. Both were full of flavor and a great start to our evening. Next was the Halibut with Rasberry and Pork Cheeks with Peppers. Again, these dishes had a ton of flavor and left me wanting more. The "design your own tasting menu," concept is a great way to experience different dishes with out having to spend a ton of money. If you want an excellent wine pairing with any course you choose, ask for Dan K. His expertise in wine made our experience at JoLe even better. All in all JoLe has an amazing food combined with an equally amazing wine list, letting you choose exactly what you want. I will definitely be back!
