Ristorante Barolo benefits from its ‘Restaurant Impossible’ boost
Ever since Robert Irvine from the TV show Restaurant Impossible gave Ristorante Barolo a whole new look and complete makeover, things have improved for restaurant owners Cristina Locke and Giovanni Guerisoli.
Although it occupies the former building of a fast food icon, has a drive through window and a flashy sign, Salsa’s Taco Bar on Mt. Hermon Road is locally grown.
Earlier this year, the owners of Leo’s Taco Bar changed its name to Salsa’s, and later opened the Scotts Valley location.
Surf Bistro and Bakery brings eats and treats to lower Seabright
At 415 Seabright Avenue, restaurants have come and gone; recently in quick succession. But Surf Bistro and Bakery has some very unique culinary skills to offer in the building next door to Brady's Yacht Club.
Ancient tea traditions have survived for centuries without the help of the Internet or cell phones. Hidden Peak Teahouse, which has created a digital-free zone, aims to instill a reverence towards the nuances between these simple leaves and the people who care for them.

Süda’s inventive menu brings pleasure to Portola
Süda means heart in Estonian, and at the newest restaurant in Pleasure Point, I found a lot to love. It is no surprise, that with seasoned owners Mike Pitt of Motiv, and Dan Voskoboynikov of Harbor Café, it has quickly gained a following. The menu is delightful, and the efficient, knowledgeable, and energetic staff, attired professionally in black, worked together as a well-practiced team.
Earlier in the summer, Süda served breakfast. With the introduction of dinner, early morning meals were discontinued in order to focus on the other two. However, when lunch service begins at 11 a.m., some of the most popular morning dishes are served until 2 p.m., perfect for a weekend brunch.
Seabright’s Tramonti makes pizza and pasta the Italian way
Tramonti is a town on the Italian Amalfi Coast in the region of Campania, known for its mozzarella, especially bufala, made from the milk of water buffalos. The town now lends its name to a pizza and pasta restaurant in the Seabright neighborhood that is the product of a dream at least a decade in the making.
