Aster, part of the Daniel Patterson Group, received its first Michelin star after only six months of being open. Once again, the restaurant and chef Brett Cooper received another star for its casual vibe and stellar food. Though Cooper’s seasonal California-focused menu at dinner is priced fair considering the quality and portions, if you really want to enjoy his creations, consider brunch instead. Items like porchetta breakfast sandwich and duck confit hash and eggs elevate the brunch experience to another level.
