After long anticipation, given the recent easing of SIP restrictions, it is time to announce that Gravenstein Grill is reopening their Patio as well as beginning Take-Out for dining beginning Wednesday, June 3rd!
While the menu and hours will be slightly limited, they are making sure to bring back everyone’s favorite dishes ASAP! Chef Bob Simontacchi has been hard at work in the kitchen, working on fantastic seasonal dishes featuring ingredients from their amazing local farm partners. Be sure to select a little something from my sip-tacular wine list, and get a little preview here of the OPENING MENU!
New hours will be Wednesday-Sunday, 11:30am-8:30pm (with an hour break between 3pm-4pm), in hopes that if Sonoma County stays safe and continues to show positive signs of recovery, that hours and menu can be expanded as soon as it is safe to do so.
Gravenstein Grill is fortunate in that they have a large open patio where people can dine in the fresh air of West Sonoma County, at 8050 Bodega Ave, Sebastopol. They are also debuting online ordering beginning June 3rd, at www.gravensteingrill.com. You will be able to pre-pay, and pick up the food with minimal interaction.
