At home amidst the historic buildings surrounding Sonoma's landmark central plaza, LaSalette Restaurant has earned its reputation as one of Sonoma Valley's favorite restaurants since its inception in 1998. Chef Manuel Azevedo's signature Cozinha Nova Portuguesa - "New Portuguese Cuisine" - celebrates the varied and complex flavors of his native Portuguese homeland while adapting them to the immense offerings of top-quality ingredients from his current home in California. The result is a unique cuisine characterized by familiar Southern European comfort ingredients (olive oil, olives, garlic, tomatoes, onions, wine, parsley etc.), exotic seasonings picked up from around the globe during hundreds of years of Portuguese expeditionary voyages, and fresh local and sasonal Californian produce. As the success of LaSalette attests, it's a winning combination for lovers of traditional Portuguese fare and adventurous gourmets alike.
