Heirloom Tomato Gazpacho with cucumber sorbet and fennel pollen; White Shrimp Ceviche with avocado, toy box tomato, cilantro, habanero, and lime, and accompanied by plantain chips; Wild King Salmon with saffron and yellow bell pepper broth, poached baby fennel, and olive tapenade; almond wood-grilled steaks like the "1855" New York Strip; and vegetable-centric sides like Grilled Summer Corn with fava beans. Dessert includes Lark Creek's signature Butterscotch Pudding and a Nectarine Blueberry Crisp.
