Partake Some More Creative Dishes

Published September 3, 2013

I know I already raved about this restaurant. But got to rave some more and Partake some more when it is just this good. It’s also pretty healthy too!


My meal started with a Point Reyes fresh Mozzarella salad with preserved lemon, Summer squash and Castelvetrano olives. The tangy lemon and salty olives blanketed the rich soft moist cheese so that every bite had all those flavors working in wonderful symphony with the rich creamy Chardonnay.

Then, the most unique French fries you’ll ever see. They start with white potatoes but soak them in Cabernet Sauvignon until they acquire this brick red color. After frying, they serve them with a homemade ketchup that also incorporates the Cabernet Sauvignon. Bet you can guess what they pair with it…

Red Wine Fries with K-J Cabernet Ketchup

I know what you might be thinking. “K-J” probably equals EEEWWW corporate winery with no soul. You’d wonder why you should go there in a town full of small producers with mom and pop attentiveness to their wines. Well, you SHOULD taste wines at mom and pop family wineries. But stop to eat at Partake afterward.

More from my appellation adventures in this region.
