Erna’s Elderberry House offers budget-friendly bar menu

The Valley has a five-star restaurant — Erna’s Elderberry House in Oakhurst — that’s on par with the Gary Danko restaurant in San Francisco and French Laundry near Napa. But I’m betting quite a few people out here dismiss Erna’s as being well out of their price range.

Starting tonight, the restaurant has a way to try out their award-winning food without breaking the bank. The wine cellar bar at the restaurant is offering a bar menu from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. nightly. Nothing on the menu is over $20 and most items are under $10. It features heavy appetizers, including three cheeseburger sliders, an organic chicken schnitzel, and a grilled cheese sandwich with Gruyere cheese and caramelized onions, among other items.

Casual dress is acceptable. The director of operations said they wanted to create a place where customers could unwind with a nice glass of wine or a cocktail, but in a nicer environment than the typical hole-in-the-wall bar.
