The scene at JORY at The Allison Inn is lively and warm. A long line of magnums of wine, made locally and signed by the producers, sits atop a half wall between the open kitchen and the dining room—a visual symbol of how wine remains at the heart of any dining experience at the restaurant. Some of the most coveted seats in the house are at the bar that borders the spacious open kitchen, as well as those around the chef’s table, located in a private room behind a wall of glass attached to the kitchen. Most guests come to drink the illustrious pinot noir wines from the surrounding hillsides, and the pinot noir flight is a great way to sample a few. But even with such a vaunted wine program, you won’t find a hint of pretention. Rather, the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star restaurant offers a laid-back and relaxing environment for enjoying the fruits of the region. On sunny days, guests flock to the attached terrace to soak up the views.
