Nasch: A Taste of Austria in Los Gatos

We heard about Nasch’s recent opening through the grapevine and wanted to check it out. After all, there aren’t too many places in the Bay Area to try authentic Austrian food. As the more simple and casual sister to Naschmarkt in downtown Campbell, Nasch is the perfect place to relax. The restaurant is brightly lit with natural light and they serve all of the essentials: cold beer, Schnitzel, and freshly made sausages.

Sonoma Valley Weekend Getaway Guide

Today, Sonoma is at the forefront of California’s wine industry, known for growing everything from Pinot Noir to Chardonnay grapes. However, the city also has a rich past including the mission period as well as Mexican colonial history. It’s the perfect place for a relaxing weekend getaway. The town is slow paced, and a bit more casual than it’s Napa Valley neighbors. We enjoyed a couple of days there and have compiled a list of some great places that we visited. We hope you check them out next time you are in wine country!

Petaluma Weekend Getaway Guide

Petaluma is the perfect town for a Bay Area weekend getaway. We loved the small farm town vibe. There were so many things to keep us busy that we didn’t even get to everything on our to do list! The city is home to many great events throughout the year such as the Artisan Cheese Festival, Wine Country Chefs of Tomorrow , and Big Q bbq event. A river runs through the quaint downtown where you find antique shops, cute cafes and wine rooms all against a beautiful backdrop of rolling hills. We spent a few days in Petaluma and still haven’t seen half of what the city has to offer. Take a look below to see some places we got a chance to visit and enjoy!

Golden Garlic: A Spicy Sichuan & Tianjin Restaurant

When most people think of Chinese food, images of Chow Mein and Sweet and Sour Pork come to mind. But being one of the largest countries in the world, China’s food varies vastly from region to region. Sichuan and Tianjin, are some of our favorite Chinese cuisines, but are a little less well known to many diners. Luckily, here in the Bay Area you can find an amazing restaurant that serves both!
