Beso Bistro and Wine Bar Restaurant Review

: Beso Bistro and Wine Bar is housed in one of the charming historic buildings on the now-defunct Hamilton Air Force Base. The menu tap dances the globe to feature, among many styles, Peruvian specialties, dynamite Southern seafood dishes and California cuisine standards. Don’t miss the crab cakes served with a tangy orange and jícama slaw, and house-made pot stickers with a good dose of ginger. The kale and beet salad features the power green cut in thin ribbons and tossed with creamy chèvre, dried cranberries and toasted pine nuts. A platter of fish tacos harkens back to the beach in Cabo with a bevy of toppings, salsas, crema and guacamole. Sipping a glass of one of the 50 wines on offer on the palm-surrounded deck while the afternoon drifts by is a delightful way to spend the day.
