Week in Reviews

St. Helena's former French Blue space is now Archetype, and Bauer believes that owner Howard Backen's "changes are luring people back." New chef Ryder Zetts is doing good work with dishes like a "stellar" roasted salmon, and the staff "greets guests like old friends." Other standouts include a "well-conceived" riff on a nicoise salad and a halibut dish ("seafood is a strength" in the kitchen). "It seems as if the restaurant is beginning to realize Backen's vision for a local hangout." 2.5 stars. [Chron]
