"Cool Gray City of Love" and The Filbert Steps

Keeping that Work/Life Balance! My friend Pamela Belknap and I have been reading “Cool Gray City of Love” by Gary Kamiya and are walking once a week to a different SF location mentioned in the book.
 
Last Friday we did the Filbert Steps/Grace Marchant Garden and ended in Levi Plaza and went on to North Beach for pizza and a huge salad at Tony’s Pizza Napoletana!

San Francisco Always Delights! So much to see and do!

Dining Out San Francisco!

dining_out_san_francisco_cynthia_palmer.png

Where interior design meets pride of ownership with delectable and eclectic food pairings.

This Michelin Guide 2018 restaurant, The Progress is the loving result of of this second restaurant for Stuart Brioza and Nicole Krasinki of State Bird Provisions. Dining is mostly family style and the menu changes nightly with a choice of 6 dishes of 17 offered! @theprogresssf

We ordered by checking-off the menu, choosing dishes from Western Additions, Raw & Salads, Platters, Vegetables & Grains, Meat & Seafood! 

Highlights of my meal were the CA sturgeon caviar potato cloud and alaskan halibut ‘a la plancha” with fava beans & green garlic ravigote, pictured!!

The food is a cross cultural experience with bright, unique combo’s and delectable sauces; where East meets West with bold flavors and beautiful platings. 

Fabulous personalized service from casually and cooly dressed staff. It’s a true dining experience that I enjoyed immensely and can’t wait to go again!

New Wine Country Eats!

NewestWine CountryDining (1).png

 3 great new wine country restaurants opened recently! 

HEALDSBURG
The Brass Rabbit at 109 Plaza St.
Serving dinner nightly, this is a local supper club inspired bistro with lots to look at. Watch the chef's counter and Argentinian wood-burning grill with rotisserie, using local and seasonal ingredients. Specials are amazing, think lobster Thermidor, Peking duck a l'orange with crafted cocktails and a high level of service in a casual and relaxed atmosphere. Ambiance Tip: Check out their tin ceiling! @thebrassrabbithdbg

NAPA
Alba at the River Terrace Inn - 1600 Soscol Ave. 
Serving Breakfast and Dinner
Overlooking the Napa River with floor-to-ceiling windows; dine indoors or on the outdoor fire pit patio and enjoy small plates of northern pacific high country cuisine that pair with craft mixology.  A quintessentially elegant yet rustic setting, they offer daily specials, midweek Happy Hour and have live music (in season) on Thu, Fri and Sat. @riverterraceinn

ST. HELENA
Acacia House at the Las Alcobas Hotel on the Beringer Vineyard - 1915 Main St.
Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner daily. Make a reservation
Located in a 1907 Victorian inn mixing vintage and modern in this California concept restaurant. The celeb chefs have created an upscale dining experience at the Las Alcobas hotel. Gather around an open hearth, sit communally if you wish, and dine on Cornish game hen and other locally sourced delicacies. Tip: They offer an afternoon tea on Thu, Fri and Sat. by reservation. @lasalcobasnapavalley
