Pizza Place
$$
“The oozy, buttery deep-dish pies are not a carbon copy of some Chicago creation by any stretch. With topping possibilities like artichokes and goat cheese, they’re a distinctly California creation — and a drop-dead delicious one at that. Note: the menu recently welcomed some healthy seeming things like a roasted kale appetizer and a broccolini topped deep dish pie, but don’t miss the classic — with sausage, mushrooms, and green bell pepper — and the spicy chicken wings. ”

BBQ Joint
$$
“Best consumed with a beer on the heated patio, this barbecue spot is filled to the brim with smoked meats of all types, from ribs to chicken to pulled pork. The burger is a favorite for many, featuring grass-fed beef with, lettuce, onion, Gruyere cheese, and secret sauce on a griddled bun. Excellent sides abound, like frankaroni (crispy fried macaroni and cheese with hot dogs), beef tallow French fries, and posole. ”

Spanish Restaurant
$$
“With BarVale, hit-maker Adriano Paganin’s main goal is to emulate the feeling of bars in Spain, where groups of friends gather informally to drink and eat small plates together. he food is Spanish, with an emphasis on tapas like patatas bravas, and boquerones. Paella by the serving — as opposed to the option of ordering one huge plate of rice that takes 45 minutes is also available. The bar is a big part of the bustling vibe: a list of cocktails featuring Spanish sherries and vermouth, plus sangria and kalimotxo (red wine mixed with cola) add to the four gin tonic combinations. Pro Tip: Great happy hour menu.”
