Michelin Guide Restaurants:

  • In Bloom – a laid-back vibe with an energetic feel offering warm hospitality, great food and drink presented on shared plates, and rock ‘n’ roll playing on the turntable. The menu is traditional California cuisine with an emphasis on supporting local farms & farmers. The thoughtfully curated wine list, local beers, and CBD craft cocktails

  • The Hatch –Hatch is a simple rotisserie and bar located just off the town square in beautiful downtown Paso Robles wine country. Fueled by wood fire, small batch whiskey, and a bustling atmosphere full of mingling locals and visitors. The restaurant is intimate and indoor seating is a mix of banquettes, high wood tables, and tall backed stools at the bar for those who like front-row interaction with some of the best in the cocktail biz.

  • Les Petites Canailles - Courtney and Julien Asseo have named this Paso Robles restaurant in honor of their three children (the name translates to "the little rascals") but this welcoming spot with a spot-on kitchen is more head of the class than detention bound. Set smack in the heart of downtown, the space's pressed concrete floors, simple furnishings and Edison lights read contemporary. Meals begin with a warm gougère before moving on to a selection of hearty appetizers. The menu features several entrées, though most eyes land on the perfectly cooked steaks.


Need something more Paso?
