5 Local Eats

While we love all of our neighboring restaurants in Sonoma, and happily send guests their way often, we’ve decided to poll our staff to find out where they are eating lately (when not at “the fig”) – and let you in on a few local spots that you perhaps haven’t heard of if you’re passing through for a weekend.

Or – maybe you’re a local in need of a little fresh inspiration.

Harvest Moon Cafe

Nick and Jen Demarest opened Harvest Moon after graduating from the culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, N.Y.
