After a long day of wine tasting, my mom picked me up and we headed to dinner at Cafe La Haye. We parked smack dab in the center of Sonoma Square and walked only a block or so before arriving at this super quaint spot. Crisp white linens and subway tile laced with local art – we were into it even before menus arrived.
The restaurant was described to us as “REAL farm to table, fantastic food!” and it met every expectation that came from that description. My mom and I were both drawn to the seafood heavy specials board and ordered solely from that list. Seared dayboat scallop with corn ravioli and creamed spinach, grilled ahi tuna with sauce gribiche, frisee, artichoke and peppers, and Alaskan halibut with smashed yukon potatoes and lacinato kale.
Every dish we had was pretty spectacular, but my mom and I both agreed that the scallop starter took the prize. There’s something about creamed spinach that we’re both very much drawn to. And if you mix a favorite with carb and seafood, well you’ve got yourself a winner in the Vrana book.
We were both so happy with our first meal in Sonoma and highly recommend this place to future visitors. Another trip to Sonoma is already on my list and dinner at Cafe La Haye will be another must as well.
