E.A.T. Extraordinary Artisan Table Restaurant Review

: E.A.T. is at the forefront of the local food movement in Temecula. Its mini-mall location belies the quality fare served inside; the restaurant does brisk take-out business, but it’s also a welcoming spot with a small town vibe, if you’re looking to linger. The space consists of white walls and wooden communal tables, accented by cutesy hanging signs indicating, “This is where you pay.” Chef/owner Leah Di Bernardo, a Slow Food advocate, likens the offerings to a cross between those at two well-respected spots in L.A.: Forage (known for serving produce from neighborhood backyard “farmers”) and Joan’s on Third (a hybrid shop/restaurant for all things gourmet). The description is apt. Seasonal salads feature only the freshest ingredients. You can easily make a vegetarian meal out of a combination of sides, such as organic kale with sweet oranges and spiced pecans, quinoa with lemon and corn, and wheat berry with local olive oil and blood oranges. Flatbreads and sandwiches --- both available gluten-free --- are not to be missed. Check the board for the daily specials, like eggplant and pesto, or wild, sustainable tuna. Pastries are a focus as well; we like the green tea matcha macaron.
