Bobbie took the reins and ordered a bottle of Byron'o8 Pinot Noir from the Santa Maria Valley. It was terrific, she sure knows her wine!
I ordered an old faithful, the StoneHouse Crab Cakes - house made blue crab cakes panko breaded and fried, corn nage and roasted pepper coulis. I have ordered these here every time I have visited the StoneHouse. They are pretty much perfect.
Bobbie and Scott both ordered the Special of the evening, Seared Onion Crusted Ahi caramelized onion, micro green salad, apple cider vinaigrette, crispy fingerling potatoes. They both just thought it was fantastic. A healthy portion and just a wonderful combination of flavors.
The time we spend in Rancho Murieta is typically a good one. Last year during the Fall show we brought bikes and took leisurely rides throughout the community. The restaurants are always so full of life and the locals, as well as horse show visitors, are so friendly. A for sure, solid meal can always be found at StoneHouse Bistro. Go for a quick bite and a glass of wine, at the the very least!
