Foremost Wine Co.
SLO’s main strip, Higuera Street, is lined with every kind of restaurant. Unfortunately, most of them are pretty mediocre. Foremost Wine Co. is an exception. The big restaurant on the far south side of downtown has very good farm-to-table-ish food (get the scallop tiradito), a long wine list, and a rotating burrata selection you’ll come back for again before you leave town. They also have a daily Happy Hour from 5-6:30pm with tons of food and drink specials.
