Ginochio’s Kitchen was just named one of “Top 50 Best Foods to Eat in Sonoma County” by Sonoma Magazine in May 2021 for our Clam & Scallop Chowder. The article shared: “We’ve found the ultimate coastal chowder. Patty Ginochio’s recipe is a well-guarded secret, made from scratch daily at her family’s Bodega Bay café. The chowder is beautifully balanced and perfectly seasoned, with plenty of clams, not too many potatoes, and bonus nuggets of scallop that take things to the next level. If there’s caramel-bacon monkey bread on the menu, grab that too”. 50 Best Things to Eat in Sonoma County – 2021

Heather Irwin, Food Critic, chose us as one of the Best Hidden Gems in Sonoma County as she shared “Hello to my new favorite Dungeness crab sandwich. Ginochio’s buttery, griddled slices of white bread hold huge chunks of freshly picked crab and a slice of melted cheese. We love the soft scallops and clams dotted throughout the chowder, and the big plus is that seafood outweighs potatoes. It’s one of the best chowders on the coast: “Best Hidden Gems in Sonoma County.

Honored to be chosen as one of Best Stops on Sonoma Coast is “just north, at Ginochio’s Kitchen, order our dining editor’s favorite crab sandwich, served on buttery, griddled slices of white bread.
