Great article on the quality of eating establishments in Danville! With places such as the Blackhawk Grille, Basil Leaf Cafe, Bridges, Forbes Mill, Faz, Amber's, Los Panchos, The Peasant and the Pear, The Prickly Pear, Piatti's and Patrick David's, we are blessed. Even the National chain restaurant, Denny's, has stepped up to the plate. Boy, it is really wonderful living in Danville, CA!

Ah, yes, my little chickadee, there is no finer dining that the perverbial tube steak. The Dog is the culinary epitome of Dan's lovely little village, I should say, and keeps me from my other delights. Yes, in deed, I do love children, properly cooked, but, of course, that only plays in vaudeville.

What about Sideboard - the best restaurant ever!!! I could eat there every meal, every day. The owners and staff are really personable and the food is wonderful. I have a food allergy, and they always have very tasty (safe) entrees (or they substitute) AND peanut butter/chocolate cookies for dessert that are my guilty pleasure. It's the one place everyone in my family agrees on when we go out to eat, and I take business associates there as well. It's perfect!

I have to second Theguynextdoor: Essin Bar & Grill is the best restaurant in Danville. Sideboard and Forbes Mills are great too, but you never know with Bridges. Sometime the food and service is great, othertimes it sucks.Last time I ate at Bridges the service was horrible, and I had to wait forever for service. I've crossed them off my list.

Thumbs up on the Peasant and the Pear (as well as The Little Pear), Mangia Mi, and Cafe Esin!
I would say that my favorite breakfast in the area is at another of the "Pear" family (albeit in Alamo), The Peasant's Courtyard. Ate there yesterday, and the Peasant Scramble (basically a "Joe's Special"), and my wife's Corned Beef Hash (with parmesan potato cake) were as outstanding as always!

Tonight, as we celebrated a birthday, we enjoyed Vanessa's Bistro in Walnut Creek. Our conversation was about the great WC international restaurants with Indian, Cuban, Vietnamese, Spanish, and exceptional French and Italian.
We enjoy restaurants in our corridor and suggest an enjoyable cuisine tour on North Main and more in Walnut Creek.
