IMG_9869-vi Last night, Yelp Elite and guests indulged at Esquire's Best New Restaurant of 2008 and Michelin-star recipient Plumed Horse in charming Downtown Saratoga. The beautifully renovated interior boasts a gorgeous glass fireplace, a private plush champagne room, a magnificent dining room, an intimate chef's tasting room and incredible wine vault with a glass floor looking down to the massive wine cellar. Yelpers were definitely in for a treat!

Guests sampled Chef Peter Armellino's culinary delights including filet mignon sliders, oysters, scallops, tuna tartare and brownie bites with caviar just to name a few, and enjoyed fine wine tastings provided by local vitners Ridge Vineyards & Winery and Cooper-Garrod Estate Vineyards. Bartenders Matthew and Tiffany also served up tasty lemon drops with a sweet surpise at the bottom: tapioca pearls!

Many thanks to the gracious staff at Plumed Horse for hosting such a fabulous event. Be sure to check out the official photos taken by Christina C on flickr and if you missed the event, read what the Elites are saying about the event here!
