This weekend we hit up one of our favorite brunch spots, Stowaway Kitchen. This place is tucked away in one of the old converted industrial buildings on Walnut street in Rino and has a really relaxed vibe. They also have a really unique breakfast/brunch menu that is delicious and filling! I had the Citrus + Vanilla Porridge and G had the Scram Breakfast Sandwich. We both also shared the blueberry scone and everything was amazing! I highly recommend this place. They usually will hold a line after 9:00am but it is worth the wait and we only had to wait like 15 minutes.
I kept this look super casual and went with athleisure wear. My pants and pullover are both Lululemon but super old. Here are good alternatives: pants, pullover.
If you drive by too fast you just might miss this little gem on Colfax. To The Wind Bistro is a tiny 10 table restaurant, but the food is incredible! I was told to get there early since they do not take reservations, are only open for dinner and have very limited seating. I made G get there at 4:45 since I was starved and wanted to make sure we got the first seating. I am not sure if it was just that particular night, or if Friday nights are not that busy, but the place didn’t fill up until about 7.
The menu changes seasonally and they start you out with their homemade peanuts which were unique but delicious. G and I shared the Cornmeal Waffle (which is a menu staple), and the Roasted Quail. I was a little nervous about the quail being too gamey but it was actually really good and would highly recommend it.
For the entires G got the Salmon and I got the chicken. Both were amazing and filling. We commented at the end of our meal that we were very happy with the portions. Sometimes when we go to a fancier place we feel like the food is awesome but the portions are so small and sometimes we leave wanting more. Not the case here, we were stuffed!
We finished off our dinning experience with some tea, coffee and the bread pudding. We each also had a couple of glasses of wine and our total bill came out to about $150.
I would highly recommend this restaurant if you are in the mood to try something new and tasty. The atmosphere was totally relaxed and not stuffy at all. Jeans were appropriate and below is what I wore.
Jeans, Boots (under $30!), Sweater (mine was bought in store at Nordstrom Rack a while back but here is a good option)
