In 1993, Chris told his newlywed wife Karen about his dream to have a restaurant of his very own, where he could have the freedom to explore his own style of cooking- a fusion of local ingredients paired with French, Asian and Italian techniques. “If we cook it, they will come," he insisted. Of course, he had just seen the movie “Field of Dreams”, and was feeling pretty optimistic. Luckily, Karen, a good sport who had paid her college tuition with waitressing tips, and whose BA in English Literature practically guaranteed her a career in the food service industry, agreed.Karen and Chris soon found the perfect spot in tiny Glen Ellen- a 1940’s wine country cottage, just ten minutes from Sonoma Square. So with a loan from Bob the landlord, a handshake from the Sam the fisherman, twelve bottles of wine bought on credit, three pans and one pot, the Glen Ellen Inn was born. Over time, the restaurant has grown from 16 seats to 80 seats, the wine list has expanded from 4 choices to 650 choices, lodging has been added, and the Bertrand family has grown from two to three with the birth of their daughter Savannah Rose in 1998. And although the reviews from Michelin, Wine Spectator and others have been wonderful, the one critic the Bertrand’s want to please is each guest, each night, each dish .
