I had originally planned to report on Fork in San Anselmo after receiving a great suggestion from rworange (thanks again!). However, plans with a friend required us to stay in Petaluma to celebrate a weekday birthday lunch--- so, we went to Graffiti in Petaluma.
Nice setting, upscale, comfortable, Asian- modern influence decor with a California menu.
2 friends and I had lunch at 11:30am and were the first ones there, but by 12:00, there is definitely a big lunch crowd sipping bloody marys.
Bloody Mary-- ok, I thought too much ice as it became watery quite fast. I would have also liked it spicier.
Overall food was good, nothing stunning but good quality and nice presentation.
I had a Ceasar Salad with grilled shrimp and a side of fries. Fries are bigger ones, not shoestring. The ceasar is tasty with strong anchoy taste. I only wish a little lighter dressed as the lettuce became heavy. Shrimp were large; not over grilled.
One friend had the red curry prawms over forbidden rice which she really liked.
Other friend had a special-- french dip sandwich which was on thinner bread, and looked pressed (vs. a typical roll). She too, seemed content.
We also started with an endive salad with cherries, and the lobster spring rolls, both good.
Total for 2 starters, 3 mains, 3 cocktails came to $100. Overall, a really nice addition to Petaluma. I hear it has quite a bar scene in the evenings.
Hope to try Fork another time!
