Restaurant Review: Checkers!

The Mrs. and I headed down to downtown Calistoga last Friday afternoon for a little lunch date since Friday night was spent serving people on Friday night dates at Bouchon.The Mrs. had been wanting to stop in and try out Checkers for quite some time. It is very casual with a simple menu with some of the Walnofer's favorites.
Ummmmmm! Tasty, chewy complimentary focaccia bread.Calzone! We split the large vegetarian calzone (I hate pepperoni and it was the only other option). Great crust and check out that nicely sealed braiding.
The calzone was packed with assorted sauteed vegetables, sundried tomatoes, melted mozzarella, and a sweet basil pesto sauce. This fun little lunch reminded me of a Friday Calzone Night from weeks past.
Homemade Walnofer Whole-Wheat Calzone.
Stuffed with meat in this one, minus the pepperoni of course! Fun afternoon with the Mrs. and can't wait to do it again................................this Friday since I am still on the p.m. shift.
