Frenchie Wine Bar has officially reopened, which means you can once again enjoy its cheese fondue offerings just as the weather starts to get cooler. Available for one or four people, there is a classic fondue option with gruyère and Emmental cheese, cracked pepper and fresh garlic, or the Frenchie Fondue with gruyère and Emmental cheese, Eastern Slopes honey, cracked pepper and truffle oil. Both fondues come with house made sourdough, though you can also add accompaniments like fresh prosciutto, Fuji apples, pickled cauliflower, baby potatoes and more.

The next time you’re in Brentwood, make your way to Wami Ootoya. The Japanese fusion restaurant offers a wide-ranging menu, but one dish we’ve got our eye on is the eye-catching soft shell crab burger. Order this and you’ll be treated to a filling meal featuring deep fried soft shell crab with pepper aioli, mixed greens, tomato, onion, lemon and thyme between a bun.
