Healthy Dinner Deals in Oakland
With all of the chatter about a Mediterranean diet being the healthiest on the planet, it seems foolish not to fill up on healthy, savory cuisine from this lush region. Do it the easy way by taking a seat at Mezzé with today's deal: Get $40 to spend on food and drink for parties of four or more for $20, plus 40% off bottles of wine from the wine list, or get $30 to spend on food and drink for parties of two or more for $15. Both options are valid for dinner only. Start with the yellowfin tuna tartare or the prosciutto and melon salad, and then order the thin-crust merguez sausage pizza, Moroccan lamb shank tagine, Kobe-style Wagyu burger, wood-oven-roasted free-range chicken, or penne with duck confit. Sip a glass of local wine as you savor the relaxed, chill vibe of this neighborhood bistro. With a soaring ceiling dotted with skylights, and rich, textured décor, this Lakeshore eatery is the perfect spot for unwinding with your sweetie after a long day. Sip, nibble, repeat. Want more?

The Destination Laid out like a blanket over the rolling hills north of San Francisco, Napa Valley's 800 square miles are home to hundreds of wineries. A happy accident of geography, Napa's soils and microclimates make for a huge diversity of varietals, while the natural pairing of food and wine has brought a number of the country's best restaurants to the Valley. Still, despite healthy wine tourism here, Napa remains a largely sleepy enclave, making it the perfect place to get away. The Digs Experience wine country like a local at the Chablis Inn, set in the thick of Napa Valley just minutes from downtown Napa, St. Helena, and Yountville. The inn features a charming courtyard, where guests can be found soaking in the hot tub or taking a dip in the heated outdoor pool. Standard Rooms are appointed with hardwood furnishings and unique artwork, and equipped with a king- or queen-size bed, complimentary Wi-Fi, a wet bar, and premium cable TV. The Diversions Locals don't pay—and they certainly don't wait—to taste wine in the Valley. Make like a Napan with a wine tasting at Silenus Vintners, which includes a flight of three wines for each guest. And because this tasting room stocks bottles from several different wineries, you'll be able to sample a variety of boutique Napa vintages. Ask the staff at Chablis to coordinate an appointment. For dinner, allow Chablis to set you up with prime reservations in Yountville or St. Helena. Our suggestion? Celebrity Chef Michael Chiarello's Bottega, in Yountville, serves classic Italian dishes with a fresh, local twist. In St. Helena, reserve a table at Farmstead, where Chef Stephen Barber marries his Southern roots with the farm-to-table approach that's become a staple of Wine Country restaurants.
