Zazu Restaurant: Can’t miss farm to feast classic in Sebastopol

Zazu Restaurant: Devoted to Slow Food and sustainability and one of Sonoma County's must-try destination restaurants

Zazu’s Restaurant and Farm’s husband and wife chef team, John Stewart and Duskie Estes, are the poster children for Sonoma County’s farm-to-table dining scene.
In fact, you’ll often see Duskie picking fresh herbs from the planter boxes on the restaurant patio, and the menu pulls from many of their Black Pig Meat Co. artisan pork and charcuterie. In the summer, tomatoes come from their own gardens or those of friends, and they’re Slow Food celebs, making all of their food with intent and purpose.
California-Italian with occasional nods to the South — but depends heavily on local, seasonal produce.
The wine list leans toward many affordable, rising star local wines that you won’t find elsewhere. There’s also a full bar with creative cocktails (yes, some actually have bacon as a starring flavor) along with a late-night scene until 11p.m. Brunch is spectacular.
Think you’ve seen Duskie before? Yep, she’s been on several Food Network shows.
