A little bit country. A little bit rock and roll. Barndiva is the hipster hangout in Wine Country, with its organic sensibilities, minimalist barn decor and swanky cocktails.
Open Wednesday evening through Sunday, the restaurant has serious out-of-towner appeal--and prices to match. Check out their Sunday brunch; the menu is a who’s who of local producers including breadmakers Della Fattoria, Neiman Ranch, Cowgril Creamery and organic eggs (in addtion to bagels flown in from Manhattan).
Lunch is simple, ‘diva’ fare with salads, roasted chicken and more luxurious indulgences like steak frites and shor ribs. French Laundry alum Ryan Fancher mans the kitchen, turning out tweezer-perfect eats.
When the weather’s nice, the backyard garden is a little bit of heaven on earth. Especially with a divatini or two.
