The newest entrant in the farm-to-table dining experience makes its debut on July 10 when Route 29 debuts in the Gaslamp. The ode to Northern California’s wine country culture brings sustainable, local ingredients and a number of vegan dining options.

While the menu changes to reflect the ingredients of the moment, charcuteries and a selection of “Jars,” featuring house-layered creations such as babaganoush routinely show up. Dishes currently touted include a chicken cacciatore with mushrooms, garlic, tomatoes, herbs, and bell peppers; shiitake-rubbed rib-eye steak, and crispy California halibut. The appetizers include crab spinach artichoke dip and roasted duck confit wings, all from executive chef Daniel Bear.

Diners can choose from a list of about 150 wines selected by sommelier Nemanja Pejcic. About 30 options come by the glass. Wines reflect both new- and old-world wine appellations, and most come from sustainably managed vineyards.

Route 29, which gets its name from the main highway through Napa Valley, features a rustic-modern vibe featuring wood, iron, and copper accents.

The restaurant is open Sunday through Thursday from 4 to 10:30 p.m and Fridays and Saturdays from 4 to 11:30 p.m.
