According to the East Bay Times, The new SIDEBOARD in Lafayette gets rated 4/ 10 for best new spots for outdoor dinning in East Bay Area! Yummy!
Like its Danville sister, Lafayette’s new Sideboard offers an eclectic, laidback and delicious spot to nosh and linger — but Erin and Ford Andrews’ new spot offers not only a deck, but a picnic option. Order at the counter, grab a grassy spot in the small wisteria-draped park just across the way, and a server will deliver your picnic straight to your blanket. (Or theirs. They keep a stack of colorful picnic-ready blankets on hand for happy picnickers.)
The deck: Sideboard’s airy, wood-accented interior — complete with antlered animal heads — may beckon when temperatures drop. But when the weather’s balmy, it’s all about the restaurant’s popular deck, where cheery turquoise market umbrellas provide shade for diners.
The details: No reservations. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner daily. 3535 Plaza Way (the tiny line at the corner of Mt. Diablo Boulevard and Moraga Road); www.itsonthesideboard.com.
