Dinosaurs used to eat rocks to help them break up the harsh meals they ingested—a fact unequivocally proven when scientists found fossilized bones with rocks near them. Today's Groupon is slightly easier on the stomach: $10 for $25 worth of fresh, locally grown food fare at Food Fair by Diego.
Food Fair features a robust menu packed with hearty bites. Starters include a homemade mascarpone gnocchi ($8) and crispy calamari with a lemony chive yogurt dipping sauce ($9). The fancied and fresh take on comfort food includes classics such as grilled cheese with goat cheese and onion jam on whole-grain kalamata bread ($8), and a grilled veggie sandwich with mixed herb aioli ($11). Entrees include a daily risotto ($13), classic pot roast with roasted carrots and parsnips ($17), and a grilled half-chicken with grilled vegetables ($16).
White furniture, mint-green walls, and eclectic artwork from local artists give the demure eatery a homey charm. Chef and owner Diego Balam, a former sous-chef at O-Bar, personally prepares each order featuring high-quality, locally grown products and made-from-scratch dressings. Open daily, Food Fair by Diego is a smart choice for lunch or dinner.
- WOW! Gourmet food at really reasonable prices. I had the goat cheese grilled cheese on amazing kalamata bread with a beautiful onion jam. It was served with a very fresh and tasty salad and some AMAZING homemade crisps - sweet and regular potato. – lafoodgirl, Citysearch
- Menu is eclectic, but probably best described as upscale, dressed up comfort foods. The owner/chef personally prepares every order himself, and is an awesome cook and nice guy to boot. The ingredients are farmers [sic] market quality, and almost everything including the condiments and dressings are scratch made. – chimmychimmycocoapops, Citysearch
