Villa Creek Restaurant Celebrates 19 Years of Tradition and Future in Paso Robles
Lively downtown Paso Robles eatery hires applauded Chef Tim Veatch as Executive Chef
Paso Robles, Calif., – Villa Creek Restaurant, a pillar of downtown Paso Robles celebrates 19 years of tradition as they welcome the future. Continuing to serve inventive dishes with a rustic-Californian, farm to table approach, Villa Creek Restaurant has hired much-admired Chef Tim Veatch to take on the role of Executive Chef as the restaurant approaches two decades of business in Paso Robles wine country.
A champion of sustainably farmed foods since opening their doors in 1998, Villa Creek Restaurant is thrilled to have Chef Tim Veatch continue this tradition. Veatch’s resume includes farm to table cooking at Farmshop in Marin, cooking on coals at Camino in Oakland, and wearing many hats from pastry cook to front line at the three Michelin star Saison in San Francisco. Throughout Tim’s extensive career he has curated strong relationships with purveyors up and down California thus affording him the pick of the crop or pasture every single day of the year. His creativity with seasonally available foods will be the focus of the menu, and will influence the inventive cocktail selections at the restaurant.
“We are incredibly spoiled here on the Central Coast and throughout the state to have access to some of the most mindfully grown foods at our fingertips,” notes Villa Creek Restaurant’s owner/founder Cris Cherry. “This was one reason we opened in 1998, and now we are excited for Chef Tim to continue our mission with his own bravado.”
Always the place to be for local winemakers, brewers and cowboys, Villa Creek Restaurant delivers an upbeat and inviting gathering place for all. Over the past 19 years, the restaurant has become a pillar of downtown Paso Robles offering guests a progressive menu of exciting dishes, classic and inventive cocktails, and a reasonably priced international wine list that is unlike any other within San Luis Obispo County. Where else can you pair a 1997 Thierry Allemand Cornas with biodynamic lamb raised just minutes away from a restaurant? As with any seasonally driven menu, the Villa Creek Restaurant menu will change with what is available from purveyors, thus allowing Chef Tim Veatch to tantalize guests’ palates with new dishes upon almost every visit.
“It is an honor and our pleasure to continue to serve up exceptional dishes and cocktails to those who not only visit Paso Robles but those who live here and make this community so awesome,” shares Villa Creek Restaurant’s owner/founder JoAnn Cherry. “We are beyond thankful to this community for embracing us all these years, and we cannot wait to see what the next 20 years brings to our restaurant and to the community.”
Villa Creek Restaurant welcomes guests Tuesday through Saturday to grab a classic margarita with fresh squeezed lime juice or a locally made Kro-Bar bourbon Manhattan on the park-front bar. Then dine-in and enjoy Chef Tim’s seasonally-based menu.
