The Black Cat, Cambria, CA

The Black Cat Restaurant Review

: This Cambria restaurant is open for lunch and dinner, giving patrons a choice between casual daytime dining and a more upscale experience at night. Dinner favorites range from sage and mushroom gnocchi to chipotle shrimp linguine, and braised rabbit with capers. At lunchtime you can tuck into fish ā€˜nā€™ chips, a vegetarian pasta with garlic cream sauce, or a burger made with grass-fed beef. For dessert, go for the pine nut cheesecake with shortbread crust. The wine list offers a nice selection of local by-the-glass options, and bottled beer is also available. This is a tiny spot, so reservations are recommended, especially for dinner.
