On the recommendation of Helen Hagstrom of Rancho Palos Verdes, my friend and I drove from Long Beach to the Elderberry House in Oakhurst to celebrate our first year together. Helen was so right--the restaurant was one of the most charming we have ever had the pleasure of dining in. Our five-course dinner was served to us before a crackling fireplace with the most outstanding service. The dinner selection was divine. Anyone wanting to share a special experience with someone should take the time to explore this very romantic restaurant. We shall certainly return again and again. Thank you, Helen, for taking the time to write. Our meal was $28 per person. It's Erna's Elderberry restaurant, Victoria Lane, Oakhurst, Calif. 93644.
