KQED Plus: Wed, Oct 4, 2017 -- 1:00 PM

Nostalgia abounds at the old-school Italian mainstay Gold Mirror Italian Restaurant in San Francisco. In contrast, a trip to the South Bay supplies a modern twist with sumptuous bites, a huge wine list and amazing service at The Plumed Horse Restaurant. Finally, unwind at a modern cantina with elevated contemporary Mexican cooking at NIDO in Oakland.

Lou's Cafe, Pappo and Lasalette Restaurant (Episode #1005H)

KQED 9: Tue, Oct 3, 2017 -- 7:30 PM

Our first stop is a family-run sandwich spot where their special sauces add an extra kick to their extensive list, at Lou's Cafe in San Francisco. Next, we take a trip to a small and trendy bistro committed to fresh and local ingredients and Cal-cuisine at Pappo in Alameda. Lastly, we follow the fragrant aroma of exotic Mediterranean flavors and spices, served up in modern Portuguese style at LaSalette Restaurant in Sonoma.

Rusty's Southern, Jupiter, Glen Ellen Star (Episode #1217H)

KQED 9: Mon, Oct 2, 2017 -- 7:30 PM

Neither is it just pizza and beer served up around the fire-pit at Jupiter in Berkeley. But we continue within the galaxy to the elegant wood-fired dishes at culinary comet Glen Ellen Star in Sonoma County's Glen Ellen.
