August FIGbits

August 1, 2012

Happy Anniversary to us! We are celebrating our life in the Sonoma community with heartfelt gratitude and love for our friends, family, staff, loyal guests, neighbors, and visitors from all over the world. It is because of all of you that we have thrived and are able to do business in Sonoma. We are looking forward to the next milestone at 20, then 25 … Thank you truly for your support and your FIG friendship!

In lieu of a big anniversary bash, the staff has the opportunity to select a Sonoma non-profit group to receive a donation from us that we hope will be useful to their organization.  We will let you know next month who they selected!

Eye on Sonoma

(Click above to watch the video about Sonoma)

“Food lovers are royally spoiled here with top notch restaurants on every corner. One of my favorites is the girl & the fig – a scrumptious taste of the region – open daily for lunch and dinner. The weekend brunch is especially good and is to be enjoyed on the patio under the Sonoma sun. For a more communal experience, be sure to sit at the bar – and don’t leave without stopping by the Fromage Salon.”

Suite D’s first backer dinner was AMAZING. We had a great group that nibbled on antipasti, roasted mushroom salad, Devil’s Gulch porchetta, radishes, salt roasted potatoes, farro, braised greens, and fig crisp. John Kelly from Westwood Wines paired his wines exquisitely, and our chefs made a special ice cream using John Kelly’s Nocino, which was lovely! Harold & Maude played on the silent screen, fresh baked cookies were taken home by all and our staff did an awesome job!
