You could stand on a corner and look around until a restaurant sign draws you in but in downtown Davis, there are so many different places, there’s just got to be a better way to pick one. There is. Each week, Dixon Patch picks a restaurant either in town or nearby that is worth checking out and this week’s choice is in Davis. Check this out:
BISTRO 33 – Whether you’re looking for a cozy and classy indoor dining spot or you prefer the clean air scent after a rain, this upscale but casual spot doesn’t have to be a favorite of just Davis folks. Dixon is just six minutes away from this 226 F Street restaurant in Davis. They specialize in “Pacific Northwest-inspired cuisine” and are housed in the remodeled old Davis Police Station in the center of downtown, complete with a three-tier outdoor patio and large fire pit. Take the Richards Boulevard exit off I-80.
When you’re there, try ‘The Rainer’—succulent roasted chicken with smoked mozzarella cheese, caramelized onions, mango mayonnaise on grilled herb Foccacia bread. It is served with a light spinach salad and is only $8.95. Fresh, delicious salads and sandwiches are in the $10 range while dinner entrees are between $15 and $20.
Hours are: Monday through Wednesday 11:30 a.m. – 10 p.m.; Thursday and Friday 11:30 a.m. to midnight; Saturday 9 a.m. to midnight; and Sunday 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. Reservations are especially helpful for dinner.
