Tyler welcomes another new clothing store… This time it’s a Gresham transplant, Jewels & Jeans. Located on Old Bullard, next to one of Tylerites’ favs, Sonoma Grill, Jewels & Jeans is a small women’s clothing boutique offering a pretty decent selection of jeans, and a small variety of tops, jewelry and accessories. Jewels & Jeans carries Citizens of Humanity, Seven for All Mankind, Paige, Miss Me, and my current favorite, Joe’s Jeans.
I love going to Sonoma Grill for the salads and appetizers, but they have a little something for everyone, including half priced bottles of wine every Tuesday. Their wine selection is pretty good, too – I like the spicy Malbecs. And for the martini lovers, they have some yummy ones like the Wedding Cake and Banana Creme Pie martinis. Yum.
We decided to head to Sonoma Grill today for lunch, and I knew what I was going to order before I got there. The Hazelnut Caprino Salad. SO GOOD. Except, when I got there I changed my mind. I have been on a huge scallop kick lately, so I went with the Shrimp and Scallop Salad. Try saying that three times fast. They have one of my favorite salad dressings ever here, and sadly, I don’t even know what it is. They say it’s some kind of vinaigrette, but it’s creamy in texture and appearance, so I’m not sure what’s in it, but it’s so good.
In addition to the good food, the restaurant also looks really cool. Stained concrete floors, colored ceiling panels, cool light fixtures and beautiful drapery add a nice touch to the ambiance. I’m a sucker for a cool atmosphere, so I give Sonoma additional points for the nice decor.
I mentioned I love their salads, but the burgers, Tex-Mex chicken sandwich, and the crab cakes are also delish. We give Sonoma Grill two thumbs up… Be sure to check it out!
