Founded in the early 1970s by Dr. Ralph and Lucile Yaney, The Inn of the Seventh Ray is nestled in the heart of Topanga Canyon, adjacent to Topanga Creek and surrounded by a forest of sycamore, oak and pine trees, it’s one of the most romantic places to eat. The picturesque setting makes the Inn a popular wedding location - whether it's a bright, sunny day or a warm evening, there isn't a bad table on the fairy tale patio. On cooler nights, seats by the fireplace are highly coveted.
A longtime advocate of vegan and vegetarian cuisine, the restaurant continues the Yaneys' mission of offering their guests the benefits of cooking without chemicals or artificial additives - the chicken and beef are raised naturally and grass fed, fish is wild or line-caught, and sauces are made with minimal use of dairy products. The wine list includes a large selection of organic and Biodynamic wines. Dinner highlights include 8-hour black vinegar braised short rib, red roast Mary's Free Range half-chicken, pan-seared scallops, miso glazed sea bass, and creamy truffle risotto.
A lavish weekend brunch buffet includes salad bars, pastry bars, waffle bar, fruit bar, seafood bar, vegan & gluten-free selections, and a wide range of dishes such as Eggs Benedict with duck bacon, green apple chicken sausage & fennel, and chipotle-barbecue free range chicken.
