Restaurant 1833 is filled with Californian history. Before Restaurant 1833 became a restaurant, the building was an apothecary, home to an old newspaper press, and home to Gallatin’s restaurant, which contained the first kiln. The outdoor dining area is a great setting for a meal with friends. Four fire pits are located in the patio area. While customers devour meals and cocktails they can relax by the fire. If being outside is not desired, guests can dine in one of their many indoor spaces.
When customers visit Lalla Grill they will have a fresh and modern dining experience. The menu is filled with local and organic ingredients combined in creative ways. Customers’ favorites are Mexican platters, street tacos, eggplant parmesan, and bacon-wrapped meatloaf. Lalla Grill offers more than terrific food – their interior design is outstanding. The gallery dining makes use of low lighting to create a romantic and intimate setting. If guests would rather dine outside, the garden features a fireplace which is perfect for cold nights. As the night progresses, customers can sample a variety of wines, tequila, and cocktails.
