Ode to San Carlos

I’m loving San Carlos, which is the closest “downtown” to us and actually has some decent restaurants. Last night we kicked off our evening at Bair Island Tap & Eatery, which serves craft brew and food sourced from within 100 miles (think 4505 Meats).The philosophy reminds me a lot of Local Mission Eatery, but it has more of a mini brewery vibe, serving up sausages and sandwiches mostly.

We also bellied up to the bar at Cask Wine & Cheese Bar, for some Cava, beer on tap, Marcona almonds and Mediterranean-style green olives. Come to find out, they serve dinner off Spasso‘s menu, and will literally cross the street to bring you the goods. I enjoyed my Capellini, and David’s mushroom burger went down easy.

But the biggest surprise to date were the “donuts to die for” at Piacere a few weeks ago. Made to order and filled with apricot deliciousness. More cream puff than donut, but who’s counting?

The salmon crepe was also delicious, with a light butter and wine sauce.

We’ve also become fans of Friday night deliveries from the San Carlos location of New York Pizza. But the real dining adventures await on Laurel Street.
