AVANT Elements

Social Space
The bar is brought to life with a charcuterie and cheese display and station, complete with fire-engine red Berkel slicer. A charcuterie and cheese chef will serve you-be-the-judge tastings and walk guests through various pairing options.

We’re On Tap – Beer, Wine and Mustard
We’ll have eight beer selections on tap, including a good number of local selections like Saint Archer, Stone, Lightning, and Cismontane.  Six wines on tap means utilizing re-usable wine casks, skipping the need for bottles, corks, cases and labels.  Whether by the sip or by the carafe, the first time oxygen touches the juice is when it hits your glass.  Plus, we’re the only restaurant in the US to have house-made mustard on tap. You’ve got to try it!

“Wines on tap is a smart idea. With the right equipment and attention to detail,” says Rob Mondavi, Jr, 4th Generation Napa Valley Winemaker, “wines on tap can provide exemplary wine with a much smaller and greener footprint. We’re pleased to be showcasing our Spellbound Petit Sirah through AVANT’s program. Vibrant color, unbridled berry character and plenty of texture creates the perfect balance in this exciting wine. We think you’ll be Spellbound.”

Working Wine Room
AVANT will feature a working wine room that is visible from three sides. Three of the four walls are made of glass so you can see inside as your bottle of wine is taken right from the rack.

Outdoor Experience
The patio at AVANT has three sides open to lush golf course views, red-tiled roof overhead and stacked stone fireplace. Enjoy true Southern California living with a gentle breeze and an inviting fire.

AVANT Table 65, a private demonstration kitchen, will offer small groups of up to twelve direct access to AVANT’s chefs, their secrets to spectacular results and private experiences in the intimate space.  To learn more about AVANT Table 65, click here.
