It’d be easy to miss this small Portuguese restaurant hidden away from the crowds of Sonoma Plaza in a small courtyard, but LaSalette is absolutely worth hunting down. Start with a tasca board of small bites, like cheese from the Azorean island of São Jorge and linguiça, but it wouldn’t be a Portuguese restaurant if bacalhau (salt cod) didn’t feature prominently on the menu, so make sure you try either the cod cakes starter or the classic baked cod casserole with potato and olive. And while it’s not a Portuguese dish, the Brazilian feijoada is also phenomenal. This little spot is perfect for a casual lunch with friends—the more you can order and share, the better.
