Chef Bruce Hill encourages diners to share at this small plates hot spot in Larkspur.. In Short Conversation flows freely as diners pass plates of eclectic, seasonal dishes between them, like mini burgers topped with truffle cheese, Vietnamese prawn salad and Moroccan-spiced lamb chops. Vegetarians enjoy the large offering of meat-free courses while chocoholics go for the El Rey ganache. Exposed-beam ceilings, brick walls, banquettes and high-backed chairs make an informal, yet elegant setting. Big windows look onto Magnolia Avenue in the main dining room with a private dining area in back.
