Around the burgundy-walled space of Sanctuary Ultra Lounge and Restaurant, guests sink in to plush chairs, savor bites of fire grilled gourmet pizzas, or get up and dance to music spun by a DJ. The lounge prides itself on effortlessly shifting from upscale restaurant to high-energy nightclub. A back room plays host to live musicians late into the night and even the morning when they all transform back into potted plants. For those more interested in dinner than karaoke, the kitchen grills up Angus burgers topped with portobello mushrooms or peanut butter, and prepares plates of braised pork and poblano tamales.
Festive tunes float through Los Vaqueros Grill's bustling atmosphere, and lively flavors cha-cha across a gourmet menu of behemoth burritos, plump tacos, and savory enchiladas. Sink smiles into a soft taco bed ($13), peppered with plump grilled-chicken pillows that snuggle under a sheet of honey-mustard-pomegranate barbecue sauce and a comforter of avocado salsa. Garden-torn stuffers burst from the vegetable chili relleno's fire-seared poblano pepper ($10), and a tantalizing torrent of dried chilis, nuts, spices, and Mexican chocolate floods the enchiladas mole rojo, packed with a choice of meat ($11). Servers lure pineapple pulled pork and confused spa-goers from a slow-cooking sauna, wrapping sizzly strips in the Super burrito's soothing garlic tortilla with pickled jalapeños and house-made enchilada sauce ($12).
Sizzling up an appetizing gamut of British and American fare, Redcoats is an indoor/outdoor social destination that will attract Tories and Whigs alike. The menu brims with delectable seafood options such as the fish 'n' chips ($12.95) to complement its pub fare. The main dining room bustles with a robust energy during the evening, but the upper dining room and the flower-laden outdoor patio offer more relaxed settings in which to enjoy a plate of crab cakes ($8.95) and make origami out of an original copy of the Magna Carta. To drink, Redcoats serves frosty libations such as Boddington's, Newcastle Brown, and Fuller's ESB, as well as an array of wines, including the locally produced Livermore Valley brand.
Stomp! clobbers cravings with the one-two gastro-punch of an extensive global wine list complemented by a carefully constructed food menu heavy on small plates and high-concept American fare. Enjoy grape-loaded gulps of the Spanish white Nora Albariño ($9 per glass) or the Edna Valley Tolosa pinot noir ($12 per glass) on their own, or supplement your sips with an order of small-plate fare, such as stuffed eggs, which partner nature's most mouth-ready projectile with Serrano ham, capers, dijon mustard, and shallots ($4). Spicy shrimp empanadas tickle tongues alongside creamy avocado mole and crushed pumpkin seeds ($9), and an Italian sandwich ($8) uses prosciutto, salami, fresh mozzarella, arugula, and aged balsamic to evoke the culinary cunning and gondolier-fueled sing-alongs of Italy without the lingering threat posed by rickety leaning towers. On Tuesdays, epicures and aerialists can sashay over the Stomp! threshold for Flight Night, during which— for a flat fee of $12—they can enjoy a trio of wines alongside artisanal meats and cheeses while making airplane noises or miming the waterfowl of their choice.
