The Bay Area is home to delicious treats, from gourmet to whimsical and everything in between. For Meet the Maker (in this case, Meat the Maker), we pick one local who produces exactly the kind of flavorful eats we love.
The latest foodie happenings in Silicon Valley.
Mountain View offers a plethora of budget friendly Middle Eastern spots that serve up healthy plates of falafel, hummus, and kebab. A new spot, however, gets bonus points for a creative setting and a helpful mural that calls out favorite menu items. Over in the increasingly hot town of Palo Alto, a restaurant opening within a hotel means the chance to indulge in craft cocktails with edible goodies made in house by a well-known Bay Area chef. Preserves, pasta, and even ice cream all get special culinary love here.
A new steakhouse with sporty influences has options for eaters of all ages and bents in Santa Rosa. And a new crop-up restaurant in St. Helena is a steal for diners in the know – hush, hush!
The latest foodie happenings on the Peninsula.
Get yer ribs, waffles and crème brulee! Sunday mid-day eats in Pleasanton has a slew of new lunch options all in one hot spot with the launch last month of Off the Grid: Pleasanton, the Bay Area’s most prolific network of rotating street food markets serving the south-east corner of Alameda County in fun and filling fashion.
Beer is gaining popularity in the 707, and a new brewery has both brews and BBQ to rev up the weekend social scene. (We like that you can bring your canine companion along for the fun). Up in the Northern Valley is a renovated spot for eats, drinks and even treasured zzzzs—and yes, there is a brewery there, too. Both of these spots have big TVs to catch that sports game.
