THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Bloom Restaurant Review: Ask for a table near one of the large windows looking out onto an avenue of chic boutiques in this shopping center village. The best appetizers are crispy calamari served with mizuna, yuzu vinaigrette and toasted sesame seeds; warm Brie with roasted garlic and sweet peppers; and grilled artichokes with mustard aïoli. Try the old-fashioned Cobb salad overflowing with fire-roasted chicken, smoked bacon, avocado, hard-boiled egg, Roquefort and poppyseed dressing. But the most satisfying dish is an old-fashioned, oven-roasted meatloaf, served with whipped potatoes and country green beans. The wine list has many selections under $35. One of the specialties here is tasting flights including anything from Chardonnays from California's Carneros region or Merlots from the Alexander Valley. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly but not obtrusive.
