Go to Appellation for one reason: the cheese plate. This restaurant is from the same folks who have Pastoral, which means there’s an incredible selection of cheese, meat, and accoutrements. The food here can be inconsistent, but if you stick with coming here for an indoor picnic of cheese and charcuterie, you’re in good hands. There’s a bistro feel, and the friendly servers will help you pick out a wine from their extensive menu that pairs perfectly with your spread. It’s a perfect neighborhood spot to hang out and catch up with friends.
