Eating and Drinking Around Town

L'Auberge Chez Francois: I fell in love at first taste, so I had to go back for seconds.  L'Auberge transports you to the hills of France and only gets better every time.  I opted for most of the same dishes I tried before, but Corey tried the lamb this time and it is amazing.  Enjoy the weather on the beautiful back patio and treat yourself to the charm of L'Auberge.

Madhatter: Chef Freddie Melgar joined Madhatter to bring a little pizazz to the menu.  Sit out on the patio and enjoy the Tuna Sashimi with Asian sesame vegetables and a cilantro vinaigrette.  Jack's slow roasted bbq pork sliders are delicious.  The menu still has your old favorites, but it is now brightened up with some new delights.

Ripple: When the chocolate chip cookie and milk craving strikes, head to Ripple for the comfort of Chef Logan Cox's warm treats that hit the spot.  The farm-to-table menu continues to change based on the season.  You'll find hand crafted cocktails, a diverse selection of cheeses and 50 wines by the glass.

Veranda:  If you enjoy sipping drinks on an outdoor patio, check out Veranda.  My conclusion after visiting for the second time is that the food is average.  (The other negative is that they don't accept AMEX).  However, the beet salad is delicious.  I'd pick Veranda if you're in the mood for some outdoor drinks.
