It’s about the ambience, the conversation. The murmur of other diners. The clink of forks and knives. The sound a cork makes as it slides out of a bottle of wine. Music. It’s about the comfort of tasting a favorite dish, or the excitement over discovering something new and wonderful. Trying a recommendation. The anticipation between ordering and watching the waiter carry your plate across the floor. Flowers and candles on the table. Seeing your spoon hover in the steam rising from the bowl. It’s celebrating aspecial occasion. Rushing to the show or lingering over coffee. Meeting the proud owner or chef. Knowing you’ll come back for more. And the joy of sharing it all with close friends and family. Join us for Menus, a celebration of food and wine—and all the pleasures they bring—on the Central Coast.
