The opening of Taste Restaurant was eagerly anticipated by both locals and visitors to Amador County. Plan to dine soon at this amazing Plymouth restaurant.
Owners Tracy and Mark Berkner are the former owners of St. George Hotel in Volcano and they have a reputation for quality, friendly service.
The restaurant uses fresh seasonal ingredients, which means that the menu changes often. Menu choices include both large and small plates and exquisite desserts for those with a sweet tooth.
We recently ate at Taste with four other couples who belong in a wine tasting group. These couples are good friends. . . we’ve been in this wine tasting group for 28 years; meeting monthly to socialize and taste wine.
We ordered a variety of appetizers, entrees and desserts among the ten of us.
I’d recommend the mushroom cigars, a tasty appetizer of shitake mushrooms and goat cheese wrapped in phyllo dough. The arugula salad was crispy and a nice started served with pears and candied walnuts.
There were excellent reports about the grilled rack of lamb, roasted guinea hen, and kurobuta pork served with heirloom beans. I enjoyed the filet mignon served with pear chips, which was delicious.
Taste is now open for lunch on Fridays through Sundays. If you go for lunch, the Taste Sandwich is a unique treat. It’s a grilled New York steak with wild mushrooms, dijon, mixed greens, and a fried egg. A unique blend of flavors that tastes superb!
This restaurant has a full service bar as well as an extensive wine list. The wine list features many of the local Amador wines, but also includes wines from other areas.
This delightful restaurant offers fine dining in the Sierra foothills; proving that you can combine the rural delights of Amador County with world class dining!
This unique restaurant is located in Plymouth, the heart of the Amador Wine Country. It’s one of our favorite destinations for wine tasting. Make plans to tour the fabulous Amador wineries soon and plan to end your day with a wonderful dinner at Taste! Reservations are recommended as this is a small restaurant that is quite popular.
