Four-Course Dining Experience | $165

Join Rancho Bernardo Inn for AVANT In Season, a culinary experience celebrating the bounty of the seasons with a four-course dinner from AVANT’s Chef de Cuisine, Sergio Jimenez.  

AVANT In Season will begin with a tour of the Chef’s Garden and the opportunity for guests to explore the hyper-seasonal produce growing in the garden and sourced for AVANT. A signature cocktail will be served to sip among the patches of colorful blooms. 

This season’s Four-Course menu will feature dishes celebrating the harvest of fall with garden ingredients incorporated into every dish, including a Lobster Bisque with marigold and thyme flowers; Gnudi with garden fresh nasturtium flowers, fennel, catnip and sorrel; Snake River Farms Wagyu Zabuton with pak choi and nasturtium leaves, and Sweet Potato Pie with chocolate mint and mint blossoms.
