In pizza we trust: Since 1973, Del's Pizzaria has been a local favorite in Shell Beach. Well, that's all changed! Dig into this iconic pizza joint's "carne amore 'za" topped with pepperoni, sausage, meatballs, Canadian bacon, and linguica at Del's new digs at 1101 Price St., suite 100, in Pismo Beach. Yes, the pizza may have moved locations but the tradition (and local love) remains strong; see the full menu at delspizzeria.com ... You used to be able to get hot comfort food (mac and cheese, especially) from Chef Jeffry Wiesinger at Barton's Kitchen, just a stone's throw form Grey Wolf Cellars and Barton Family Wines in Paso Robles. Well, Chef Jeffry is now opening his own restaurant, Jeffry's Wine Country BBQ, located in downtown Paso Robles (look for it at 819 12th St., suite 100; go to jeffryscatering.com for more info)! That means that Barton's Kitchen is now occupied by a new chef hoping to keep wine country satiated between tastings. Meet Jeff Thomas, who aims to bring farm-to-table flair to this popular grub spot along Highway 46 west (for more information, go to bartonfamilywines.com).
