California Restaurant Month - January

Visit Yosemite | Madera County is proud to participate each January in California Restaurant Month!  

Enjoy the journey to Yosemite National Park - take a drive through the ranches and rolling hills of eastern Madera County. Here farm-to-fork isn't just a catchphrase. In this comfortable farmland we grow oranges, almonds, peaches, walnuts, pomegranates, grapes and figs. Your travels will take you into the heart of the Sierra Nevada mountain range. There you'll find a everything from a laid-back brewery vibe, to bubbly brunch bites, delicious vegan recipes, a locals-favorite whiskey lounge, special lakefront evenings, world-renown European dining perfection, or even a table with a view of Yosemite Falls.

Madera County's specialty purveyors of honey, breads, cheese, wine and spirits have a world of fresh ingredients in their neighborhood. Ingredients are the inspiration for this food scene. Our chefs are motivated by the extraordinary quality in the rich range of seasonal produce and delightful libations. No matter the time of year, delicious dining is always in season.
