La Foret – End of an era or new beginnings?

La ForetIf you want to have another celebration dinner with French cuisine and fine wines in Almaden Valley, make reservations soon. La Foret is slated to close next month, and Almaden will miss its favorite fine dining restaurant.

Nestled amidst lush forest in a historic building in the New Almaden area, this quaint restaurant was touted as a place for special celebrations. La Foret has served up exquisite French delicacies for 38 years. But now owner and chef John Davoudi is retiring. To savor the gourmet flavors of lobster tail, quail or a rack of lamb, French style and crafted by Davoudi, head to La Foret by March 26, 2017. That’s the last planned day of service.

But there’s still hope… the restaurant is up for sale! In an emotional message to his patrons on social media, Davoudi thanks all guests who celebrated their special occasions and created memories there. “We can’t thank you enough for all your kind words about our restaurant. We are looking forward to handing off the torch to the next qualified person to carry on our time-honored tradition of hospitality in New Almaden and commitment to excellence. Therefore, we are currently listing this restaurant and property for sale.”

If you are a restauranteur, this could be a great opportunity. Almaden residents would undoubtedly be greatly appreciative. To find out more, visit
