Summertime desserts

We are enjoying the long days of summer, the warm breezes and delicious food.

With Chef Alaun’s creativity, diners seem to always save a little room for dessert.

A current favorite on the dessert menu is the Tarte aux Framboises.

Raspberries-raspberries-35243775-3872-2592.jpg

It is all quite divine with crème pâtissière and mascarpone chantilly.

Rounding things up and true to French form, is a delicious cheese plate.

This plate, accented with Roquefort blue cheese, fig jam, candied walnuts and crostini is the perfect ending to your meal.

Come and join us at Julia’s for Lunch or Dinner.  The options for all courses are tempting and delicious.

Cheers!

Bastille Day

We all knew Chef Alaun would have amazing things up his sleeve for Bastille Day.

If you are not familiar with this French holiday, it commemorates the beginning of the French Revolution with the Storming of the Bastille on July 14, 1789.

The reviews encompass the food, service and ambiance, all of which make the experience truly worthwhile.

Listen in…

“The architectural aspects & furnishings would be more than enough to make the trip from Half Moon Bay [41 miles]. We had the best meal we have had in months.

“It was beautifully quiet and the service was not rushed.” 

“Julia’s food and service is always consistently excellent.  If you haven’t tried Julia’s, you are missing a wonderful experience.”

There you have it folks.  Just a sampling of the positive reviews on Open Table.

We have an array of stunning options to enjoy for Lunch and Dinner.

Spring vegetables

Our diners are enjoying the bounty of spring produce on the menu.

Chef Alaun is using vibrant options throughout our starters and main courses.

A favorite of many are the beautiful lettuces.

They are gracing us on salads and providing a fresh pop of color on our sandwiches.

Next up are the colorful radishes.

We are serving them as a starter alongside baby lettuce and cucumbers.
