Great food in Davis, CA?
The top Davis restaurant is Osteria Fasulo. Great Italian food at (unfortunately) Italian prices, which are viewed as rather steep by the locals. Other more affordable restaurants include Seasons and Mustard Seed. If you like sushi, Mikuni is strongly recommended. For hamburgers, Burgers and Brew and Tommy J's are favorites. Davis has also a brewpub called Sudwerk. The beer is good but the central European style food is undistinguished.
I've been spending time there as First Born now attends the university.
Dumpling house: just ok. I've had way better in SF, Burlingame, and Chinatown in NYC.
Redrum: no clue: I look forward to trying it!
Burger and Brew: I love this place: and it's close to the university.
Crepeplace: just ok, nothing to write home about.
Farmers market on Sat am: yes to everything Trockwood said! and I love the interesting paletas (popsicles). As I try more places I'll try to post back.
So good to see a post from Chardgirl again!
Thanks for mentioning the paleta folks. I remember that they got a big buzz at one of the early Eat Real Festivals in Oakland, selling out the first day. Then I promptly forgot about them. But they're back on my radar again.
Redrum burger is a great divey place, the ostrich burger is worth noting. Waaaayy better than shake shack
And coming from nyc go to the farmers market if you can and hit whatever taco truck you see! Also at farmers market will be a stand selling afgan "bolanis" that are great- look for the pumpkin- and would make a delicious plane snack
Hmmm....not usually a lot of action on that topic, but you could try a search using I-80. I haven't been in awhile, but there are some places "downtown", I think 1st, 2nd, 3rd street.
Here is a Davis search. The dumpling house is recent.
Break a leg! Does that work for concerts? Now I want't to check it out!
