Lon's at the Hermosa

This Four-Diamond restaurant will be serving a three-course prix fixe brunch from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. For a taste of the season, select spring pea soup with Dungeness crab followed by slow-roasted lamb leg with ricotta gnocchi, artichokes, and fava beans. Other starters that will set the tone for an incredible meal include mini cornmeal waffles with berry compote and Meyer lemon whipped cream as well as roasted local beets with truffle-goat ricotta and honey vinaigrette. Finish with a farmers market dessert: marinated fresh fruit of the day, lemon poppyseed cake, and sorbet. Brunch is $75 per person plus tax and gratuity.
