Dining Guide | Page 4

One of the favorite pastimes in this region is dining out, and it’s no wonder — there are so many fantastic restaurants. This guide covers the area from Alamo to Pleasanton, a veritable gourmand’s paradise. It separates eateries by cuisine, from burgers to Chinese to Mediterranean. In the mood for Italian? How about sushi? Check out the appropriate sections to find the telephone numbers for your old favorites as well as to get ideas for new places to try. This guide is a publication of Pleasanton Weekly, Dublin TriValley Views, SanRamonExpress.com and DanvilleExpress.com. We hope you will use it to munch your way up and down the 680 corridor.

PLEASANTON’S O N LY B R E W- P U B !
