Wednesday night steps up the food scene at the Downtown Market.
BBQ is becoming a Sonoma County thing. Dad and Son’s hits it out of the park with carefully smoked brisket, St. Louis style ribs and four kinds of sauce, including Alabama white. Cochon Volant, from Chef Rob Larman (La Poste, Sonoma) brings bbq onsite with a custom made smoker, 5 Dot Ranch meat, ABC baking buns and his own pickled red onions. Two very different personalities, but both equally charming.
Republic of Paradise smoked, fried tofu stuffed with mushrooms, fresh arugula salad and sweet potato chips only teases to the rest of the lineup of jerk chicken and steamed pork buns. For southeast Asian noodle fanatics, pho-style rice noodles laden with fresh and pickled veggies, pork, chicken and hard-boiled eggs in a fragrant broth.
Eat. Eat. Eat.
