We had a great first visit to Julian, and are looking forward to trying Chef Tio's other property, The Belfry. Julian closes July 4th, and we understand why. Seating space is at a premium, and parking can get tough.
Chef Tio came out and spoke to nearly every table. She told us which dishes would be included on The Belfry menu (the smoked salmon deviled eggs for one!). We were very impressed by her style and her food.
My husband and our friend had the Camp Lindo Farms Chicken, and I had the Chef's Vegetarian special, which was a "Southwest Corn Succatash" over Basmati rice. It was fresh, light, and delicious! For dessert we tried the White Peach Upside-down Cake and the butterscotch bread pudding. Both were big hits.
Having moved to the area in late 2014, we are sorry we didn't "discover" Julian until now. But we have met Chef Tio and will most definitely follow her on her new adventure.
