Just opened in Wine Country, G&G is your new, non-winery must-visit: flush with hunting lodge digs (black tufted leather booths, stone fireplaces, wood slatted ceilings), and a cocktail-laden downstairs bar (try the Leatherman w/ 10yr aged bourbon and Qi Black Tea Liqueur), this tavern-y gem's now serving up duck & chicken wings w/ fried pickles; a gratin of chorizo & Manila clams w/ grilled flatbread; and the G&G Burger, a grass-fed beef number topped with gruyere, house-cured bacon & melted bone marrow torchon, which comes with a side of fries dipped in duck fat, which, much like their Tales, deserves a woo-hoo!
