The Abrothacary Herbal Bone Broth at Moraga Farmers Market

The Abrothacary, an Oakland-based, woman-run company that features herbal bone broth and cleanses recently started offering their goods at the Moraga farmers market. I’ve passed by this booth several times and have been intrigued by what’s being offered, has anyone tried this stuff? Do you make soup with it or mix it in other ways? I make broth from the leftover turkey carcass on Thanksgiving and agree with Ina Garten that it’s like liquid gold, it makes soups so much tastier!

From their website:

The abrothacary is a woman run business committed to bringing forth nutrient dense deliciousness. We specialize in Deeply Nourishing Herbal Broth.

We also offer 5-day nourishing Broth & Soup cleanses. We believe in the importance of a healthy digestive system. Check out the link below to find out more!

La Finestra Opening at Moraga Shopping Center in October

Moraga Shopping Center

The Italian/Sicilian restaurant La Finestra closed last summer in Lafayette after a huge fire and although there were talks about them coming to Hacienda de las Flores in Moraga which ultimately fell through it turns out that that La Finestra will be coming to Moraga after all, this time where Terzetto Cuisine used to be, across from Safeway. Look for an October opening. This new location will feature an oyster bar, a banquet room in back for private parties, as well as a baby grand piano played by Stanley Middle School director Bob Athayde. Thanks to everyone who emailed about this.

From their website:

I want to offer my heartfelt thank you to all our friends and loyal customers and let you know that after thirteen months, there is good news!

I have signed a lease and will be re-opening La Finestra Ristorante at 1419 Moraga Way, in the Moraga Shopping Center across from Safeway in the beautiful Town of Moraga. Our new space is easy to get to and offers plenty of parking. We are currently working on adding our own welcoming touches and hope to be open in October, with our same staff and great food.

We are eager to get back to the work we love, greeting and serving the customers we love. My family and I are grateful for your support and loyalty. Please continue to check this site for updates and Grand Opening dates when we can welcome you back to La Finestra Ristorante !


Noodle Theory Opens at Rheem Valley Shopping Center in Moraga

Rheem Valley Shopping Center, Moraga

Over the past few months Moraga residents have eagerly anticipated the opening of Noodle Theory, the Asian fusion eatery with popular locations in Oakland and Emeryville and they have now opened with packed diners clamoring to get a spot over the weekend. It got so busy on Saturday with outside diners they had to temporarily close the outdoor patio yesterday to give the kitchen a chance to catch up. Check out their Moraga location web page here. (Menus coming soon).

In addition to indoor seating there is a spacious outdoor dining patio in front as well as bar seating. Wine and beer, including several draft choices (Oakland United, Fort Point and more) will go great with these dishes with a kick. My favorites were the beef udon, chicken wings and tofu and veggie garlic noodles. Check out photos of these dishes and more after the jump. It’s great to see an exciting restaurant of this caliber opening in Boraga, I mean Moraga, hopefully setting a trend that will continue going forward…

More photos after the jump… Continue Reading
