Sabio on Main - Pleasanton


#1

I stopped at this place the other night for a break on my long drive home from the Inland Empire. It has only been open a few weeks but everything seemed solid.

House-made (except for the Serrano ham) charcuterie platter was excellent.

Nice composed salad for a hot evening: heirloom tomatoes, plums, burrata, “sherry gel,” and smoked almonds worked well together.

Oxtail empanadas with aji amarillo sauce were great. Salt cod fritters with Green Goddess and a pepper and almond relish were also very nice.

Given the Spanish focus it seemed bizarre that they didn’t have any Spanish reds by the glass. A Godello went well with what I ordered.
