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.
Grass-fed burgers (ground in house daily) and sangria are part of the dining scene at a new 650 spot, cheers! Meaty options abound, but you can also have a pleasing plate of porcini-based pasta and a Little Gem lettuce salad, too. That particular opening means that the quest for hot and filling Thai (with tea) and pleasing chicken wings now points diners to a petite-sized restaurant over in Foster City.
New seasonal eating menus for traditional and approachable Mexican cuisine that adheres to the Bay Area's “eat local” mantra have popped up in Marin—making ample room at the table for a tequila bar for those so inclined or a more humble street vendor for that Sunday morning produce procuring outing.
Two mobile operations have made the jump to new restaurants in the East Bay with promising to-go slices of hot pizza and killer waffle fries with Korean BBQ beef toppings—yum is right, Oakland and Berkeley.
Do the shuffle: Management and chef changes in Marin translate into new experiences for customers. Sometimes that means what’s old is new, as well as the chance for one noted chef to return and cook in his hometown. The views are good in Novato at Hilltop 1892, which has been a hot spot since way back when.
You can now have delicious Bundt cake or custom nitrogen processed ice cream at the new dessert spots in the 650, hooray! In Burlingame, a hot new café has great options from jook to pizza, and catering, too, for the office types in our midst.
Check you out, Napa! In the 707, the space that once housed the vegetarian dining powerhouse Ubuntu is now the home to a popular new restaurant that plays to the needs of the region by offering a range of edibles and a wine list to match.
