This is my bento today. I am so bored by it, I didn't even eat it. I need a bento intervention! I need some spark, something to get me excited about the great food in Sonoma County again!
Cue Sonoma County Restaurant Week! Last year at this time, the lovely people at the Sonoma County Economic Development Board put together the first ever Sonoma County Restaurant Week to celebrate the amazing restaurants, food purveyors, farmers, wine and beer makers, and general awesome eating environment that is Sonoma County. Over 80 restaurants participated with three-course fixed menus at $19, $29, and $39, depending on the venue. It was a HUGE hit! I went to the girl and the fig, Viola Pastry Boutique, Barn Diva, La Vera Pizza, and at least one other place during Restaurant Week. I had a BLAST and ate so much great food.
The pocket book is a bit tighter this time around, and Mr. Sonoma Bento and I are in the middle of a move, but it wouldn't hurt to go to at least two places would it? I mean, my bento inspiration is at stake here. If you are in Sonoma County, the week of February 21st through February 27th is your time to head out and eat at over 100 different restaurants. Check out the menus ahead of time, make your plan of attack now! I can't wait, I can't wait! (So far I am thinking of heading to Jackson's Bar and Oven, SEA Thai Bistro, and going back to Viola's...)
If you aren't in Sonoma County, road trip!
