Davis: Seasons; restaurant review

80 North

Seasons 102 F St., (530) 750-1801. L-D daily; $$$.

The fragrance of smoky wood greets diners at the door, tipping you to the delicious items--including artisan pizzas--that come out of this restaurant’s wood-fired oven. Addictive foot-long housemade breadsticks begin meals. Though the menu has an array of steak and fish entrees and a good selection of vegetarian options, the appealing starters alone can compose a delicious meal: warm, garlic-laden house-cured olives with a touch of fennel; grilled fresh peaches stuffed with gorgonzola, honey, and toasted almonds; delicious Dungeness crab cakes with remoulade sauce; and the most delectable heirloom tomato bruchetta. Still, a couple will have room for a spinach salad with gorgonzola dressing, a roasted eggplant penne, and a dessert of refreshing raspberry sorbet (brought in from Berkeley) and a refined chocolate chip cookie. Drinks include cocktails and beers as well as a selection of wines by the glass. Tables in the spacious dining room have views of the open kitchen, and an outdoor patio is divine in good weather—especially when you get the additional thrill of an Amtrak train thundering by across the street.
