Wine: an ongoing obsession… What began with 88 labels back in 1997 stands at 3,200 labels and nearly 30,000 bottles today. The list invites you to explore, experiment, and share our passion for wine, whether you order a $15 Chilean malbec or your favorite $500 Napa cab. The April 2008 Food + Wine said it best in 12-page feature “When it comes to pairing wine and food, Kasperski’s approach is like free association with a corkscrew.”
Cowboy Ciao – what were we thinking in 1997 when we christened our first independent venture? But for every guest disappointed we were not a boutique selling Italian-designed Western wear, another dozen delighted to discover a restaurant with inventive fare and a whimsical bent.
Cowboy Ciao began with a vision of an Old West roadhouse, where both ranch hand and city lady would be welcomed and feel comfortable; where a weary traveler could find a satisfying meal served with genuine hospitality and a bit of theatrical flair. As the flagship dining experience by Spaghetti Western Productions, Cowboy Ciao’s aim is simple and true: to thrill each and every guest, every visit, with an entertaining, memorable experience.
order Baroque style welcomes guests with a lively, colorful, dramatically lit space – one reviewer called it Addams Family meets Old West bordello… go figure! Cory Golab of Cal Designs created a marriage of Italy (crumbling stucco, deep jewel tones, gold leaf) and the Old West (repurposed barn wood, old rusted iron) enlivened by a touch of camp (cherubs, Mardi Gras beads, black & white photos of Western stars and 1940’s cowgirls in fringed hot pants).
