Up in Sonoma’s historic plaza is a spot that breaks up the monotony of Wine Country’s stuffy, seasonally-driven restaurants. Valley is housed in an old adobe building, has the feel of a small-town cafe, and might inspire you to fill your closet with Blundstones and denim onesies and trade in the 9-to-5 for farm life. The laidback ethos is reflected in the restaurant’s nourishing dishes, like braised lamb, fried artichokes, steelhead trout, and brunchtime french toast with apple butter, all served on a patio with twinkle lights. Of course, these dishes should not be the only thing on the table—a glass of natural wine to go with it will complete any leisurely lunch or dinner here.
