You’ve heard us mention Niner Wine Estates in the past as well as the Restaurant at Niner. We recently went back to experience another exceptional meal from Chef Maegan Loring…and of course, enjoy some Niner wine.
As usual, the service was fantastic and the views of Heart Hill from the patio are truly spectacular (be sure to look in the photo slideshow below to see what I mean). It was great chatting with our friend Lisa that works there and we appreciate that Maegan came out to talk with us. It’s always fun conversation and good catching up on the food side of things at Niner. Last, but not least, the folks that took care of us were on top of it as well. Another great experience from A to Z.
Here’s what we ate:
Burrata – cow’s milk, curried carrot, carrot top pesto, pita chips $9.00
Noodle Bowl – roasted pork belly, soft boiled egg, pickled ginger $19.00
P.E.I Mussels – tomato fennel broth, Italian sausage, chickpeas, orange gremolata $15.00 (compliments of the Chef)
Duck Mole – sorghum grain, queso fresco, cilantro $21.00
The wines we had, between the two if us, were:
2014 Silhouette Du Coeur $10.00 per glass
2013 Chardonnay $12.00
2012 Malbec $14.00
2013 Pinot Noir $16.00
Each dish was very unique and had some standout points. The burrata was awesome but that curried carrot was really nice and I wasn’t expecting that. The noodle bowl was really nice with great flavors. I’ve been hung up on noddle bowl/ramen dishes like this lately. The mussel dish had one of the best broths I’ve had in a while, really good! Duck mole. Not much else to say other than…Duck. Mole. I do not have much experience with mole but this had massive flavor and lots of rich spices.
We have to clap it up for Maegan and the gang once again. Thank you so much for another great food and wine experience in Paso Robles! Lastly, be sure to check out the shots of their kitchen garden. Extensive and beautiful!
