Owned by two restaurant industry vets, Craft & Gather offers classic pub burgers and handhelds, including a lamb burger, fancy grilled cheese, and fried chicken sandwich. Executive Chef Steve Jensen, who has previously worked stints at several other well-known local eateries, regularly creates fresh sheet items using seasonal ingredients that are regularly advertised on the restaurant's Facebook page. A patio installed not long after Craft & Gather's spring 2017 opening offers a relaxing spot to enjoy a meal and drinks, as the restaurant overlooks a green on the former Painted Hills Golf Course. Bordered by a small stream and shaded by the nearby hills, Craft & Gather's location makes you feel much farther from the city core than you really are. (CHEY SCOTT)
