"Locals would like to keep" this Danville New American-Med to themselves, touting its "inventive", "beautifully prepared" menu that
"changes seasonally", "exceptional" service and "elegant" (but still child-friendly") atmosphere; "order dessert first and plan your dinner arount it" advise insiders, as pastry chef/co-owner "Esin makes all" the "glorious" treats "in house."

The tableclothes are as crisp as the waitstaff's shirts at upscale Esin Restaurant & Bar. The menu follow the seasons with hearty dishes such as slow-cooked duckleg confit with pomegranate, celery-root purée, rainbow chard, and pear chutney.

"With stellar cooking technique, top quality seasonal ingredients, and exemplary service and hospitality from everyone working in the dining room, Esin rises to the top again.”  —Linda Carucci

Our first-ever repeat top scorer is Esin Restaurant & Bar, which continues to wow with its stellar cuisine. But more than just food, it was that hard-to-define ambience that pushed Curtis and Esin deCarion’s Danville eatery to the top.
