Spinster Sisters in Santa Rosa

Columba | Aug 26, 201208:15 PM     9

Lured by reviews in both the Bohemian and Press Democrat newspapers, a friend and I lunched here recently.

We chose several small dishes to share:
fresh garbanzo beans
Kennebunk fries with sage and rosemary served with aioli
raw kale salad with croutons, blue cheese, cherry tomatoes and bacon
flat bread with carrot-harissa salad, feta and baba ganouj

Everything was delicious and the portions were ample. Our only "criticism" was that we'd imagined the kale salad as a shredded salad that was rubbed or pressed. It came instead as bunchy, curly kale - not bad, just unexpected.

There were many herbs and spices, so each bite was unique and would have been even if we'd chosen only one dish apiece.

The restaurant is a large, light, beautiful space with a long bar and tables along two walls. The noise wasn't too bad, in spite of high ceiling & bare floors.

It's a bit off the beaten path and there were as many staff as customers at lunch time. I hope they make it.
