Ellen McCarty and Kevin Weinberg opened the Walnut Creek Yacht Club in May of 1997 with the mission of bringing the finest and freshest from the sea to Walnut Creek. Why do we call ourselves a yacht club? Because we want to bring the atmosphere of a day on the Bay to landlocked Walnut Creek. We want our guests to feel comfortable, relaxed, and welcomed. Our décor includes many beautiful nautical touches: teak, mahogany, stainless steel, and even an authentic jib which was a gift to Kevin from the America’s Cup Defender, Alinghi. In January of 2008 we completed an extensive remodel, expanding the restaurant by twenty-five percent, and adding an oyster bar. We have been voted Best Seafood Restaurant in the East Bay by Diablo Magazine for the last 11 years, and have won numerous other awards, including Best Chef, Best Bartender, and Best Sommelier. We have a full bar, and a Wine Spectator Award winning wine list.

Winner of the Best Restaurant Awards from DIABLO MAGAZINE and THE EASTBAY EXPRESS. Postino is located in a historic brick and slate-roofed Carr Jones designed former post office in downtown Lafayette. Inspired by the traditions of Italy with an American inclination, Postino delivers a seasonal menu using the finest local and imported ingredients. We serve the full menu at bar and have walk in tables available in the lounge and patio. Private rooms and banquet spaces seat 6 to 250.

"We have eaten at Tommy Bahama every year when we are in Sarasota but this time it was not so special. I sent my drink back as it was not at all like it has been in the past. The asparagus was very good and the chicken was fine but not as good as previous visits,"

From creative light bites such a to small plates and entrees and price points from $4-$24, diners can enjoy an interactive dining experience of Classical Modern cuisine including an open air kitchen and wood burning oven and grill.

"It was our anniversary and we wanted a special dinner. We got more than we expected. The kale salad was amazing. In fact, everything we ordered was wonderful. Our waiter was very friendly and attentive. The restaurant itself is very attractive. If we lived in Sarasota we would dine there regularly. I found out about it through a friend in Ca. where we reside. Funny way to learn about a Sarasota restaurant but happy I listened to her. Also, the prices were reasonable."
