THERE ARE A LOT OF OPTIONS FOR LUNCH, DEPENDING ON YOUR MOOD.
Picnic at a winery? Casual? Fancy? Outside? Inside? Light?
These here are my personal favorites.
My happy place. An absolute must. (For everything: cocktails, snacks, breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner...I swear.)
A swanky spot with beautiful, amazing-tasting food and a lot of style. Bridgerton meets Alice & Wonderland.
Bravas bar de Tapas
Okay...Here's the deal with Bravas. I love their food and cocktails. Their decor is super legit. Nice out? Enjoy their backyard dining or backyard bar. (Epic game on TV you can't miss? They have TVs at their outdoor bar.) Cold and rainy?
Sit inside by their (awesome) fireplace. But the music. Oh my god.
They play doo-wop. (?!?!) And try to call it classic rock.(?!?!) I don't want to hear the Beach Boys. Ever, really.
But especially whilst enjoying a lovely dining or cocktail experience with friends.
So...if you must go, try to distract your ears... Or maybe now it's all you'll hear since I pointed it out.
Or bring your mom. She'll LOVE it.
Lo & Behold
Awesome craft cocktails and great, elevated, global comfort food.
Guiso Latin Fusion*
This small, family owned restaurant features seasonal & locally sourced ingredients in
Latin American/Caribbean dishes with a hyper-local wine-list.
It's absolutely PHENOMENAL.
Indoor/outdoor dining. It's small, so come early. It's not to be missed.
Award winning bread and bakery. Great omelettes, sandwiches and pastries. Consistently awesome quiche.
Roof 106 @ The Matheson (Lunch only on FRI-SUN)
Homemade bread. INSANE sandwiches. And they have liver-mousse plates & sardine toast.
I'm in heaven. Take it to go and enjoy it across the street w some wine @ The Harris Gallery.
In Wine Country
We probably eat at Diavola 2x/week. Their lunch is as impressive as their dinner...and so are their cocktails.
Best pizza I've ever had. Like, ever.
Feeling like Asian instead of Italian? Head next-door to The Gun Club. OMG.
Willowood Market Café*
This place is a well-worth drive to the tiny town of Graton. It defines a "perfect weekend" for me if I get a chance to go. They have a polenta menu, an extensive, local craft beer offering and phenomenal wine list. And it's just down the road from a whole lot of my favorite wineries...so it's a great place to eat if you're heading to West County to taste.
