The Side Bar: The Door Restaurant

At this time of the year, an important question arises whenever my friends and I want to go out for happy hour. Where can we go to drink, enjoy the great outdoors and watch the scenery all at the same time?

Well, Va de Vie comes to mind right away if you want to nibble, drink wine and watch the scenery (such as it is) all at the same time. However, since my friends and I are happily married and would NEVER even consider watching men walk by for sport, we have decided The Door in Walnut Creek is a great place to go for summer cocktails and snacks.

The Door’s patio is great for relaxing in evening summer weather, and the sweet potato fries are the best I’ve ever had. And I’ve had a lot of sweet potato fries, so trust me. While not the Trader Vic’s original, The Door’s Mai Tai is tasty and worth the price tag. Have fun, be safe when you drink and drive.
