Handline Restaurant Opening in Sebastopol

New California "coastal cuisine" spot, Handline Restaurant, opens soon from Peter Lowell's owner.

Handline Restaurant in Sebastopol has set an opening date for October 6.

The “coastal California” cuisine from Peter Lowell’s owner Lowell Sheldon and his partner Natalie Goble is focused on fresh seafood, homemade tortillas, and Southern California-style burgers, along with soft serve ice cream (a nod to the location’s historic past as a Foster’s Freeze).

Lowell has transformed the space into an open-air, sustainable building with a large outdoor patio, tortilla-making room and massive kitchen. Opening menu includes ceviches, spicy Fisherman’s Stew, Baja-style beer battered fish, Al Pastor tacos, mole smothered roasted squash, fresh calamari, oysters and seasonal crab sandwiches. Dishes are between $3 and $15, making it a family-friendly spot. Much of the produce will come from Goble’s family farm, Two Belly Acres. More opening details as the date

Much of the produce will come from Goble’s family farm, Two Belly Acres. More opening details as the date approaches but expect lunch and dinner daily at the 935 Gravenstein Hwy. location.

  1. We live up near Fiesta shopping center and almost always walk to restaurants downtown, including Peter Lowells, Martha’s, East West, Hopmonk, Vignette, etc. Peter Lowells (as well as Eight and Shushi Tozai, etc.) have enhanced the neighborhood, creating great places within an easy walking distance of many homes in central Sebastopol.

  2. I don’t know Marilyn and don’t have anything in this issue, but I live on Willow and am currently parked about 2 blocks from home because of a function at Ives park. Fortunately, this does not occur every day the way it might with a restaurant. Just a little empathy.

  3. “Destroyed neighborhood?” That is certainly a privileged take on parking issues. I, for one, am super excited about Handline. Fish tacos for all!

  4. Well, at least he is putting this restaurant in a commercial area where he won’t destroy another neighborhood like Peter Lowell’s has with the lack of parking. Hope there will be adequate parking for his customers and employees at this new location.

    1. Always interesting to read the never ending obsession people have with parking….and what I mean is close parking…people must have close parking or their life sucks…it’s sad and pathetic how selfish people are if they are inconvenienced by 50 feet…it really should to be all about you, Marilyn.
