A la carte


<strong> Cavallo opens second eatery, Burgers &amp;amp; Vine:</strong> Carlo Cavallo of Meritage Martini Oyster Bar &amp;amp; Grille has opened a second Sonoma restaurant, the Burgers &amp;amp; Vine Barbecue Joint, in the former Cucina Viansa space.

The restaurant, which opened Feb. 22 after a long renovation process, seats 110 inside plus 30 at the bar. It is open for lunch and dinner every day.

The menu includes burgers and chicken wings, hand-cut fries and shakes, as well as a family-style barbecue menu featuring dishes like whole roasted chicken.

The upscale but casual restaurant also offers homemade pies for dessert, in flavors such as chocolate pecan, apple crumble and key lime, plus housemade gelato.

The historic property directly across from the Sonoma Mission started out as a creamery where Joe Vella made ice cream alongside his brother Tom, who went on to establish the Vella Cheese company.

There are six TVs for watching sports and live music performances Thursday through Sundays. Cavallo plans to add brunch on weekends in the near future.

Burgers &amp;amp; Vine is located at 400 First St. East. It is open 11:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 11:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday through Sunday.
