If you’re looking for a dining experience that strikes a balance between healthy and haute, this sleek restaurant and bar on El Paseo is the spot of your wildest dreams.

“We wanted to make good-for-you fabulous and fun,” explains co-owner Charissa Farley-Hay, who opened Wildest with her husband, Bill Hay, in 2019. The concept is hard to define, she notes, because there’s a little something for everyone. She sums it up as casual fine dining with Napa-style, farm-to-table fare.

The menu nourishes the body as much as it delights the senses with options like grass-fed meats, wild-caught seafood, and creative plant-based dishes. In a world where veggie plates are often an afterthought, Farley-Hay is proud to report, that isn’t the case here. “We have dreams of getting Michelin stars someday for our plant-based dishes,” she says. “A third of the menu is plant-based.”

Guests can pair plates like turmericglazed cauliflower or wagyu beef with selections from the restaurant’s Wine Spectator award– winning wine list, all while sitting under the stars enjoying live entertainment.

The Wildest moniker functions on multiple levels, referring to the restaurant’s hip, social environment as well as the team’s commitment to closeto- the-earth cuisine.

Wildest offers a full calendar of wine dinners and tastings, special farm-to-table dinners, happy hours, and late-night supper clubs and is available for private events.
