Now this favored Wine Country destination boasts nearly 40 wineries, many of which are all-California in quality, with another 30 or so in the planning stages.

It is the dream of every creative chef to have his own restaurant where he is in complete control and can express his culinary vision. In the case of the Lido Deck Restaurant & Wine Bar in the Lido Marina Village, there is a dynamic duo at the helm of this small, pierside bistro — chef Don Schoenburg and his wife, pastry chef Christi Carter. They also have a wine bar next door with its own small plates menu. Both are tucked away in the village right by the water, with a deck overlooking the bay or a humongous wedding boat docked in front, depending on whether or not the bridal party is out to sea. We were seated in a big white leather booth in the small dining area where the wall of sliding doors was open to the three tables out on the deck.
