THE DOWNTOWN SLO EDITION

Several restaurants added to THE Soifeats RESTAURANT LIST… All in SLO… all I have had the opportunity–or misfortune–to dine at on numerous occasions and almost all are part of the downtown-ish midtown lunch or pub core. THE GIANT GRINDER  Part of a grouping of 4 or 5 sandwich shops within as many blocks of mid-town constantly…

MILESTONE TAVERN San Luis Obispo

MILESTONE TAVERN  San Luis Obispo’s newest restaurant and already a serious contender in the tap-room/lunch-bites category for the area.  Being a couple blocks from Cal Poly and with an emphasis on beer, I had low expectations from the beginning for anything interesting being realized.  Expecting a total bro-spot, I stopped in to view the menu…

Kitchenette, Upper Crust and Budget Cafe SLO

KITCHENETTE in Templeton added at  ♦  Emphasis on the ‘ette’.  Curt menu, and small items.  Fun little Ladies-Who-Lunch items delicate-sized and beautiful.  Winelist not published, you point at a regional map on the wall and receive something from their extremely limited grouping of forgettable Paso super-market wines.  People rant and rave about this place–I’m kinda…
