You might know that Paso Robles is home to some of the top wineries in the country, but did you know it’s also home to two Michelin-starred restaurants? Check out these fabulous places to eat in Paso Robles wine country:
Justin Restaurant - ⭐
Newly awarded a Michelin star, The Restaurant at JUSTIN boasts some of the best food you’ll ever taste. Executive Chef Rachel Haggstrom not only creates delicious, beautiful dishes, but does it using the freshest possible ingredients! In addition to the Michelin star, The Restaurant at Justin was awarded a Michelin green star - thanks to the fact that their farm-to-table menu is made up of 95% locally-sourced ingredients.
Six Test Kitchen - ⭐
If you’re looking for an intimate affair, head into Tin City’s urban neighborhood and look for a sign that reads “SIX”. The interior of Six Test Kitchen is dark and natural and you’ll be seated at a wooden bar immersed in the kitchen atmosphere as you get to watch the chef at work. With a multi-course tasting menu, this venue seats only 12 guests in an exclusive setting - so get a reservation now!
Le Petites Canailles
When a winemaker’s son & a butcher’s daughter come together, magic happens - and Paso Robles visitors get to reap the benefits! This dynamic duo serves up top-notch French food with world-class service at Les Petites Canailles. If you’re looking for a farm-to-table bistro fondly named “the little rascals” after the couples’ three children, you’re at the right place. It’s sophisticated, yet casual, and will give you a taste of the Central Coast.
If wood-fired comfort food and classic cocktails are your jam, The Hatch is perfect for you! This casual atmosphere serves down-home GOOD food just off the town square in Paso Robles. You’ll find locals and visitors alike mingling at the bar or enjoying rotisserie in the old historic Grangers Union Building. This spot is a bit more casual than the first three so if you’ve got kids, this is a great bet!
In bloom is the newest restaurant on the list (founded in 2022), but it opened up in Paso Robles with a splash! By collaborating with local farms and purveyors, they feature a menu unique to the Central Coast and fresh as can be. Plus, this restaurant is located on the property of Paso Market Walk - a cute building containing local boutiques, tasting rooms, and more!
