Our location is ideal for lunch or dinner. A larger grand dining area can seat up to 100 guests.
boon eat + drink is a modern California bistro. our menu is simple and tasty. comprised of small plates, salads, and seasonal main dishes, we feature the best of Sonoma County’s bounty. from artisan cheeses, local meats, to produce, we believe great food comes from using deliciously fresh and seasonal ingredients and not doing to much to them. we proudly serve only Russian River wines (made and brewed) and microbrews from both Sonoma and Mendocino County.

Called, “The best lunch restaurant in town.” Executive Chef Jeff Young and his wife Toni serve up delectable seasonal dishes. Tucked into the small hamlet of Forestville in the Russian River Wine Appellation, Twist is a full-service restaurant with dining options indoors at the chef’s counter or alfresco on the cozy patio. The whimsical eatery is tiny, but the food abounds with flavor and the service is always friendly. Ideas for imaginative daily specials are world sourced, but depend on what’s locally available from Sonoma County farmers. They have created a following for their Chicken Fried Chicken. Whether it is a Cajun meatloaf sandwich, called “The Bomb”, or an Asian Caesar salad, Twist gives Chef Jeff Young the opportunity to cook his style of food – American cuisine with a splash of Italian and Asian to twist his culinary creations into mouth-watering entrees and side dishes that contain free-range, organic, and sustainable products.
Toni’s famous chocolate chip cookies and mini lemon tartlets are offered up for dessert and the wines have been selected to pair well with Jeff’s offerings. Beer and specialty soft drinks are available. All meals can be made to take home or on a picnic. Corkage is $10.00. No charge for winery personnel bringing in their own wine. Open Tuesday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
