Eastern Madera County is home to waterfalls, giant trees and culinary royalty. In honor of California Restaurant Month, happening throughout January, SNO presents a special series spotlighting each participating restaurant.
OAKHURST — The Elderberry House is a local crown jewel. The restaurant is a part of Château du Sureau, which has earned the coveted Forbes Travel Guide Five Star award, AAA Five Diamond award and Relais & Châteaux distinction. The visually stunning, serene nine-acre sanctuary blends the charm and beauty of the Provençal region of France with central California’s verdant landscape.
Through January, The Elderberry House invites guests to enjoy a nightly changing three-course menu. And on many nights, Chef Robert Snyder III’s artful journey to culinary perfection includes additional courses.
This year, as a special offer to local patrons, the three-course menu will transport diners to an elegant evening reminiscent of a European escape, at a more achievable cost of $48 per person.
The Elderberry House showcases the freshest Californian produce in sophisticated dishes that are packed with flavor. Evenings at this fairy tale setting can — and often should — be accompanied by the region’s best wines.
California Restaurant Month guests will be welcomed with a signature glass of “sureau,” sparkling wine infused with Elderberry nectar harvested from the estate. Additionally, one can enjoy the sommelier’s wine pairing for only $55 per person.
Dinner service is offered from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., Wednesday through Sunday. Advanced reservations are best. Each evening’s menu will likely differ based on the availability of the freshest possible ingredients.
