Two Birds One Stone, the yakitori-inspired restaurant from chefs Douglas Keane (Cyrus) and Sang Yoon (Father's Office in L.A.), has sprung to life in St. Helena, offering a much anticipated departure from typical Wine Country fare.
The roomy 4,000-square-foot restaurant occupies a historic stone building from the late 1800's, which recently underwent a major renovation. The original stone is still the main focus, incorporating modern steel elements from Brayton Hughes Design Studios and SB Architects. The dining room offers 80 seats, with 35 seats on the outdoor patio, complete with its own yakitori grill. In true Napa style, fire pits and water fountains are part of the loungey outdoor seating area.
The food is meant to to be "inspiring but not challenging," according to Keane, centered around skewered, grilled meats and vegetables (yakitori). Japanese-inspired small plates, and fine-dining dishes like a foie gras parfait with cherry blossom gelée are all part of the fun.
Starting this Thursday, hours are Thursday-Monday from 5:30 p.m.- 9 p.m. Lunch will be added in the future.
