Here are a couple of newsy nibbles from the Sonoma County dining scene:
Santa Rosa’s Americana has opened a second location in Sebastopol, in the former Gypsy Cafe space. The restaurant opened July 6, and the menu is identical to the Santa Rosa restaurant’s breakfast and lunch offerings, featuring classic diner dishes with modern flair (including one of the best burgers in Sonoma County).
