Here's a foodie paradise where every dish on the menu has an exotic name. Don't miss the outrageous cocktails like the namesake "ratafias," which are cordials made with white wine, vodka and fresh seasonal fruits. The food isn't cheap, but Monica Pope isn't in it for the money. She's a passionate advocate for people who make (and grow) great food. While she is bowling you over with her dreamy flavor combinations, she's also single-handedly creating a market for organic farmers, artisanal cheese makers, specialty ranchers and local chocolate makers.
