Touring the Edna Valley


There's only one real dining option within the Edna Valley, Fiala's Gourmet Deli and Cafe. But nearby San Luis Obispo has two particularly wine-friendly restaurants.

Blue. The eclectic cuisine - fresh local rock crab or a grilled flatiron steak in a Port-reduction sauce - seems tailor-made for the Edna Valley's Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs. $$$; dinner daily. 998 Monterey St., San Luis Obispo; 805/783-1135.

Cafe Roma. Rustic Italian dishes like pasta with lamb sausage ragout are a perfect match with Edna Valley Rhônes and Pinot Noirs. $$$; lunch Mon-Fri, dinner Mon-Sat. 1020 Railroad Ave., San Luis Obispo; 805/541-6800.

Fiala's Gourmet Deli and Cafe. A charming place for a meal, or, if you're feeling outdoorsy, order a picnic lunch of gourmet meats and cheeses. Don't miss the grilled paninis. $; breakfast and lunch daily. 1653 Old Price Canyon Rd., San Luis Obispo; 805/543-1313.
