Tavern is a Brentwood neighborhood staple that’s always got something going on in addition to the seasonal Suzanne Goin menu. Winemaker Wednesday features a different sampling of California wineries each month. For $25 you get four 2-ounce tastings and light snacks, including a selection of cheese, salumi and fresh artisanal breads. There are special menus for Christmas Eve, New Year’s Eve and Thanksgiving that include vegan options. On the last Saturday of every month you can indulge in one of Christiaan Rollich’s latest concoctions at “Christiaan’s Bar” in the larder section of the restaurant. In the summer, chef de cuisine Amy Deaderik brings her annual low-country boil to the table: Southern potluck board with pimento cheese, Benton’s country ham, confit chicken rillettes, pickled okra, chow-chow, potato salad and triscuits; and a second course of radish and corn salad with scallions, house-made buttermilk cheese, cornbread croutons and lime. The main event is the abundant Carolina seafood boil with Gulf shrimp, crawfish, andouille sausage, potatoes and sweet corn served in an overflowing tin bucket with Deaderik’s house-fermented “hawt” sauce. Dessert is Southern cornmeal cobbler with peaches and buttermilk ice cream. For everyday, the Little Gem salad with Dungeness crab, avocado, cucumber and radish with green goddess dressing is a lunch classic. A dinner favorite is the short rib with sunchoke puree, spinach and crème fraiche. —Michele Stueven
