Driftwood, newly-open in the former Con-fusion space on Davis, gets high marks for its stylish interior, ambitious menu and well-priced wine list. The space is light and airy, with (not surprisingly) driftwood wall hangings.
The large plate menu is varied, from rabbit to grilled octopus to roast chicken, and the small plate menu offers appetizers that would suffice for a light meal, e.g., the pork rillettes. The wine list is small but varied with good prices for interesting wines from around the world. Prices are not out of line for the quality and uniqueness of the food, but it’s not a place for weekly, inexpensive dinners.
