Twist opening in Forestville

Author: | posted 06/8/12 | Print This Post Print This Post |

Another opening in Forestville on the horizon…

Twist, a bistro/diner is slated to open in early July in the former Aioli Deli location. In the kitchen is Chef Jeff Young, who locals may know from his years as culinary director/chef at Alexander Valley Vineyards and prior to that, Chateau Souverain and Tre Scalini in Healdsburg. AVV’s Toni Echols will partner in the venture.

“We’ve been working on this since May 1,” said Young. The interior has been gutted to include an L-shaped counter with room for about 12 inside in addition to patio seating. The restaurant will serve breakfast and Sunday brunch to start, adding lunch service with upscale sandwiches like a “fried calamari roll” inspired by the lobster roll, entree salads, homemade pasta and other dishes inspired by Young’s interest in locally-sourced world cuisine.

“We’re changing from an upscale deli to an ‘eatery’,” Young said.

Recently, it was announced that Canneti would take over the former Mosaic restaurant this fall.

    We ate lunch at Twist yesterday. It was wonderful. I had fresh salmon, perfectly grilled, corn cakes and
    fresh green bean salad. They have expanded the seating area inside and the outside patio
    is very pleasant.

    They should do very well.

    Thanks heavens! I was just thumbing through the Sonoma County Visitor’s Guide ‘do you speak Sonoma?’ and Forestville isn’t listed, even on the map. I started to think we were disappearing.

    Yay. I was so sad to see Aioli go as there is nothing on earth like Autumn’s fish tacos, but I’m also glad to see that–between this new addition and Catelli–Forestville will have more restaurant options on Front Street. The new pizzeria is WAY better than Andorno’s was, all they need is their liquor license to come through. And La Rosa Market and Taqueria, also good food and family run.

    Forestville. The Good Life!!

    Will they do take out? The only problem with that area is such limited seating and parking. Take out would be awesome!
