When in California, it’s a must to dabble in wines. This is, after all, home to the Napa Valley and Sonoma and Mendocino counties. We highly recommend a visit to The 3rd Corner, a wine shop with a bistro inside. You know you’re always going to get the best wine and food pairing when you’re dining here.
The best aspect of the 3rd Corner is the tasting packages. There are four, and each cost just $20 per person. There’s a flight for Spanish wines, one for French wines, and one for wines from all over the world. With the international flights, you could be sipping wines from Santa Cruz to New Zealand. And in September, you can choose a flight of six wines for $66. You’ll have your pick from 24 wines.
There’s also a three-course meal for just $22.95. You’ll have your choice of soup or salad, an entree and dessert. You can add a wine flight for only $12. The flight comes with three wines: a chardonnay, pinot noir and port. That’s an amazing deal for great food and wine that’s been professionally paired.
Of course, the other reason you should come to the 3rd Corner is for the food. We love the generous hours for happy and late hour. Happy hour is Tuesday through Friday, 3-6 p.m. Late night happy hour is Tuesday 10 p.m. to midnight, Friday and Saturday 10 p.m. to 1 a.m., and Sunday 9 p.m. to 11 p.m.
The menu is just one page long and lists the classics: steamed mussels, hummus, short rib sliders, rib eye steak, several pasta dishes, charcuterie plates, braised beef short rib and an incredible mac and cheese made with duck confit, applewood smoked bacon, aged cheddar, penne and a panko crust.
The brunch menu is mouthwatering. To give you a taste: stuffed French toast, goat cheese omelettes and chilaquiles, which has poached or scrambled eggs, crisp corn tortilla strips, salsa roja, chopped onion, queso fresco and sour cream.
Prices are affordable. They range from $18.95 for the farro salad to $25.95 for the New York steak.
