MARTINEZ, Calif. – Martinez Recreation celebrated the 12th annual Restaurant Tour Saturday, Oct. 8, with 14 establishments participating. Over 200 guests from Concord, Fairfield, North Carolina, Napa, Vallejo, Walnut Creek, Martinez and Pleasant Hill enjoyed a beautiful fall afternoon walking the downtown.

Guests reported the restaurants provided a good selection of food and welcoming atmosphere. They found the food and drink samples to be delicious and portions generous. Many were excited to try new eateries.

The Restaurant Tour raised $3,040. One hundred percent of the proceeds benefit the O0hs, Ahs & Giggles program, a yearlong series of free  family-friendly shows (puppeteers, magicians, animal acts, jugglers and more).

At the end of the tour, guests voted for their favorite restaurant. All restaurants and bars received rave reviews, but the winner of the 2016 Restaurant Tour Favorite Restaurant is Barrel Aged/Barrelista. This is the fourth win for Barrel Aged/Barrelista.

This year’s winner of the Tour raffle basket is Martinez resident, Pat Chauvet.

The Martinez Recreation Division wishes to thank the following restaurants and their staff: Barrel Aged, Barrelista, Beaver Creek Smokehouse, Haute Stuff, La Tapatia, Luigi’s, Main Street Sweets, Nu Rays, Pacifica Pizza, Roxx on Main, Starbucks, States Coffee, Sunflower Garden, and Whiskey Lane.
