Tapas…in Winters?


How long has it been since you’ve visited Winters? This teeny agricultural town boasts some real dining gems, including Putah Creek Café (http://putahcreekcafe.com) and Buckhorn Steak & Roadhouse (www.buckhornsteakhouse.com). But my favorite reason to make the drive to Winters is to chow down on the tapas at cozy, convivial Ficelle restaurant. It ain’t fancy – you order at the counter, and the tapas are delivered to you – but the kitchen offers up some of the most beautiful, tasty small plates I’ve encountered in the region.   Note: Ficelle doesn’t take reservations, so come early.
