Douglas Keane, the gifted chef who left his two Michelin-starred restaurant, Cyrus, in Healdsburg last fall following a decree by his unmovable landlord, is popping up at The Strand House later this month. Bouyed by pairings from Opus One, Seghesio Vineyards, La Sirena, and Byron Winery, Keane will serve a five-course menu that includes dishes like a soba-entwined ocean trout, Thai lobster, and wagyu striploin as part of the Neal Fraser-helmed restaurant's "Culinary Masters Series." Keane's courses are priced at $100, with a $50 supplement for the wine pairings. Check out Keane's full menu below, find reservations at 310-545-7470, and lets just hope he likes our weather enough to pull a Jeremy Fox/Jeff Cerciello/Timothy Hollingsworth.
