First Bite: Sienna Restaurant


Last weekend I had an opportunity to visit brand new Sienna Restaurant in El Dorado Hills, which has opened up in the space last occupied by Masque Ristorante. While the restaurant has retained its distinguished, upscale Tuscan ambiance, the menu is just the opposite: fun items include the coconut crunchy shrimp (with a pineapple-black pepper reduction) the spice-crusted Ahi tuna; and a bacon, onion marmalade and blue cheese “artisan burger.” The restaurant also showcases a number of specialty cocktails (feeling frisky? Try the pomegranate Cosmo) – and the desserts we sampled were fabulous.
