Broadway Prime: A User’s Guide
Dry-Aged Prime Rib | Cut-to-Order Steaks | White-Linen Tablecloths | Casual Vibe
Antipasto: cozze al forno—wood-roasted mussels with sausage and lentils
Primi: rigatoni con polpette—homemade ravioli filled with lemon cream, spinach, and ricotta
Secondi: grilled Berkshire pork chop with tuscan bean ragu
Dolce: buttermilk panna cotta with red wine-poached pears
Where to Sit: Request a chair on what Michelin praises as a “post-card perfect garden terrace.” It’s even heated during the winter.
When to Go: Due to its location in the heart of wine country, the bistro gets busy with tourist traffic on weekends. Try stopping by mid-week to avoid a wait.
Prime rib: bone-in Broadway cut
Vegetarian entree: herb-seasoned, grilled portobello mushroom
Side: English baked popover
The menu lists cuts of meat according to size. Try a Peninsula cut for a smaller portion, or opt for the Broadway cut if you’re craving a heartier slice.
Feel free to leave the tie and suit jacket at home. Despite its white-linen tablecloths and wood paneling, Broadway Prime maintains a casual atmosphere.
Popover: a hollow roll made by baking light egg batter in a muffin tin. It can feature sweet or savory flavors.
While You’re in the Neighborhood
Before: Feel good about browsing the selection of gold cuffs, crystal-encrusted earrings, and heart-shaped pendants at Helen’s Jewels; a portion of every sale is donated to the American Heart Association (1233 Broadway).
After: Try a unique spin on a classic cocktail—such as an hibiscus margarita or a barrel-aged negroni—at Barrel House (305 California Drive).
While creating their refined dining experience, the chefs at Kincaid's prove that the U.S. is wide and its dishes are deeply complex. Starting in the plain states, the menu tempts forks with grilled sirloin steaks smoked over Applewood and served alongside beefsteak tomatoes. The kitchen then heads east for New England–style clam chowder, then turns south until it hits on a Cajun-style étouffée with prawns, mussels, clams, scallops, andouille sausage, and cheese grits. And the chefs aren't afraid to tweak recipes, either—in order to elevate their down-home-style meatloaf they wrap it in bacon and serve it with a tangy brandy-mustard sauce. International and fusion flavors also crop up on the menu, with dishes such as the smoked beef carpaccio and an Asian-inspired slaw.
Sixteen Mile House: A User’s Guide
* Keywords:* Lovingly Prepared Prime Rib | Beef Dry-Aged In-House | Local Seafood | Marinated in History | Birthday Favorite
To start: build-your-own salad, tossed tableside
Steak: slow-roasted prime rib, topped with béarnaise sauce
Seafood: fresh shellfish and fish cioppino
Sides: creamed corn and baked potato
When to Go: If you’ve got your eye on the prime rib or the catch of the day, stop in from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. for an early-bird discount. Otherwise, come on a Friday or Saturday evening to pair your steak or seafood with live music.
You’ll enter through the bar, but then you’ll walk through the bar area to the dining room to be seated.
If you’re dining with kids, ask if there’s a table by the giant aquarium—they’ll be mesmerized by the clownfish.
Past Lives: The original Sixteen Mile House was built in 1872, serving travelers on their way to and from San Francisco (which stood about 16 miles away). In the late 1960s, plans to tear the building down prompted the formation of a local preservationist movement. It wasn’t successful, but in 1970 a pretty good replica opened just down the road. Since 2007, it’s been owned by the ultra-hands-on restaurateur Peter Liu—look for him behind the bar or at the host’s stand.
Béarnaise: Essentially a hollandaise with different seasonings, this popular steak sauce consists of a base of emulsified butter, egg yolks, and vinegar flavored with shallots, tarragon, and pepper.
Cioppino: A fish stew that originated in San Francisco, it’s made with the catch of the day, typically a combination of fish and shellfish.
While You’re in the Neighborhood
Before: Learn sewing skills via a take-home project such as an embroidered scarf or robe at The Sewing Machine Place (239 Broadway).
After: Kick back and wind down with a relaxing foot massage at King Body & Foot Massage (600 El Camino Real), which stays open till 11 p.m.
If You Can’t Make It, Try This: Peter’s Cafe (10 El Camino Real)—it shares an owner and an old-fashioned sensibility with Sixteen Mile House, but focuses on more-casual diner classics starting at 6 a.m.
