Chino's Rock & Tacos pairs authentic Mexican eats with a socially conscious cooking philosophy, and serves them both in a party-minded rock 'n’ roll atmosphere. Two double-item combo plates can include crispy tacos and chimichangas that scale mountains of spanish rice with pinto beans led by chicken or beef sherpas. Mouthwatering fish tacos filled with grilled mahi-mahi, ahi tuna, or shrimp are fashioned with sustainable seafood practices, and the enchilada packs your choice of chicken, beef, or cheese into a pillowy tortilla. Popular bottled beers such as Corona wash down free chips and salsa, or supply the high notes during glass-bottle family-band showcases.
At Tenth Street Basque Cafe, diners always receive the full attention of chef Dallas Holt. The Spanish-Basque-style café does not maintain a regular menu and only seats guests at 7 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays and 6 p.m. on Sundays for a prix fixe dinner prepared by the chef. Chef Dallas typically winds palates up with tapas such as stuffed mushrooms or albacore fish cakes before regaling senses with a main course such as stone-oven-cooked whole salmon or his specialty, the chicken and sausage paella.
Though fish 'n' chips might strike the casual diner as a simple dish, connoisseurs of the British specialty—including the chefs at Alfie’s Fish & Chips—would beg to differ. To them, the dish hinges on a delicate balance of textures: crunchy, light batter must yield to a soft-and-flaky fish.
It’s this attention to detail that has earned Alfie's Fish & Chips droves of fans and made the cross-timbered shop an anchor of Lompoc. Walk past the red telephone box at the entrance and you’ll be greeted by other charmingly english touches, such as a Union Jack flag and bread bowls filled with clam chowder. The counter area doubles as an english market stocked with biscuits, Cadbury chocolates, and other British delicacies.
Instead of bellying up to a bar, visitors to Avant Tapas & Wine can savor ambrosial tastes?such as Inception chardonnay, Hitching Post pinot noir, and Falcone syrah?at the Wine Wall. Here, a dispensing system measures out exact pours of 52 wines hailing from California?s other wine country?the prolific central coast. Visitors immerse their taste buds in sips of diverse varietals from 20 regional wineries, such as Ground Effect Wine Co. in San Luis Obispo and Hoyt Family Vineyards in Malibu, all produced next door at Terravant Wine Company and enjoyed in Avant?s industrial warehouse confines.
Guests can also pair wines with locally flavored cuisine, from hormone-free rib eye to produce picked from nearby organic gardens. While swirling vibrant reds or sweet whites in their glasses, diners take in live music three nights a week or peruse the establishment during tours.
When Flavors Indian Restaurant cofounder Shiv Dave was working as a financial advisor for a big-time accounting firm in Indonesia, he was struck by the lack of authentic Indian cuisine outside of his native country. Together with his wife, professional dietitian Shilpa Dave, Shiv set off the spark for a family-run restaurant dedicated to producing healthy traditional feasts from the Indian subcontinent. As an American extension of the Dave family's original venture in Indonesia, Flavors Indian Restaurant introduces meals of fluffy naan bread, creamy paneer, and zesty curries to the American diet of apple pies and candy-based cereal products. Chefs from India draw from years of professional experience and firsthand knowledge of their culture's cuisine, whipping up meals of tender lamb vindaloo or seafood masala with a well-honed expertise.
