Our next destination is in Oakland where Belotti Ristorante e Bottega is led by a Milan born chef offering a fresh, elegant take on Northern Italian cuisine. Last, we visit 5A5 Steak Lounge, a contemporary steakhouse serving prime cuts from around the world right here in San Francisco.

My name is Leslie Sbrocco and I’m the host of Check, Please! Bay Area. Each week, I will be sharing my tasting notes about the wine, beer, and spirits the guests and I drank on set during the taping of the show.

2017 Decoy Rosé, California $20
It’s not just France that owns the dry rosé category these days. California versions are topping ‘favorite’ lists, as well. This Provencal-inspired pink is crafted with an eclectic roundup of grapes including Syrah, Vermentino, Carignan, and Pinot Noir. It’s bright and refreshing yet spicy and savory. From sipping a glass on the patio to drinking the rest of the bottle with a meal, the Decoy delivers.
