Simplicity Bistro: Fresh, local fare in Grass Valley

I LEARNED SOMETHING FROM OUR three meals at Simplicity Bistro over the past week: I learned that I have a burgundy beef need that can apparently only be satisfied by recurring dinners at Simplicity Bistro.

I’m a bit worried, though, because yesterday at lunch I also discovered that I likely have an addiction to the custardy quiche with the light crust, served with a mixed green salad.

OK, I might as well admit the rest of this tale of human weakness. It’s also going to be difficult to control my craving for the pumpkin cheesecake and the carrot cake.

The good news, though, is that—so far—I only seem to be addicted to those things that I’ve actually tasted at Simplicity Bistro.

The reasonable prices at this wonderful new restaurant in Grass Valley make these cravings and addictions nicely affordable.

Co-owners Retha Morton and Stephen Cicatelli opened Simplicity Bistro about a month ago, and already their lunch business is booming. And, from what we’ve seen, the dinner crowd is growing too.

I don’t know anything about the business side of operating a restaurant, but if—as I suspect—success is primarily based on an excellent cuisine, then Simplicity Bistro is a guaranteed success.

Meats are free-range and locally-grown, salads are fresh and crisp. There’s a good selection of local wines, and the desserts (to live for) are from Emily’s in Grass Valley.
