Vegetable love

At Julia’s, we love using what is fresh, in-season and delicious.

The vegetables spanning our Lunch & Dinner menus are a front-runner to showcasing what is amazing around the Bay Area.

Chef Alaun’s creative mastery uses them to highlight all of his courses, but they really shine greatly in our Starters and Main Courses.

Hello beautiful beets.

Not only are they gorgeous, they are firm and delicious.  Suspend any disbelief that you don’t care for beets, and sink your teeth into these.

These are beets to be savored and accented just as our Team does, with cara cara oranges for an unexpected pop of color and toasted almonds for a bit of texture and dimension.

Another gorgeous option for vegetables is the radishes & cucumber salad.

There is a freshness here like no other and crispness to the vegetables that is perfectly satisfying.

Not only it is colorful, it is full of flavor.  It is love at first bite.

Rounding things up, we love asparagus.

With this beautifully done steak, this vegetable pairs perfectly.
