Before, From the Hearth had multiple locations throughout the North State, the delicious eateries began as a humble bakery in a north Redding warehouse.

FTH has grown and adapted but never forgotten its bakery roots. That’s evident in every dish they serve, whether it’s a delightful deli sandwich, gourmet burger or scintillating wrap.

Freshness you can taste in every bite awaits you at any of their locations across the North State.

And the best part about FTH’s diverse menu is that while it’s all freshly prepared, the menu will take you several times to taste it all. One bite and you’ll want to be back for sure.

Best of the North State 2019: Best Restaurant went to Clearies Restaurant

BEST RESTAURANT

Clearie’s Restaurant & Lounge

1325 Eureka Way, Redding; 241-4535 

www.cleariesrestaurant.com 

When you want to go out and spend your hard-earned money for a great night out, there’s really only one option that has everything – Clearie’s Restaurant & Lounge.

When Robbie Clearie opened the restaurant in 2011, Redding history collided with her place located on the site that had been The Shack. In addition, she ordered up a few dishes from her grandfather’s restaurant – Doc’s Skyroom and Sports Bar.

Fast forward and Clearie’s is the go-to for a great night out and overall dining experience. From it’s amazing bar and attentive bar staff to ridiculous appetizers and a menu that looks like it was plucked from a New York or L.A. five-star restaurant, Clearie’s breaks the mold for great dining in Redding.

With its history and Robbie Clearie out to make her own history, it’s not hard to see why Best Of voters continually choose her place as the Best Restaurant.

Cheesecakes Unlimited

Cheesecakes Unlimited opened in downtown Redding in 1991 and was an instant success. In fact, their loyal customer base kept growing so much they’ve had to move several times.

Though their cheesecake really is fabulous, Cheesecakes is perhaps best known for their amazing salads, something Best Of voters knows as top-notch.

With locally sourced vegetables and dressings made from scratch, it’s hard to miss with any of the salads. There are 11 on the menu, so choosing can be a challenge. The choices include tasty options like the Glazed Walnut Chicken with orange champagne vinaigrette and the Shrimp Pine nut with a garlic basil vinaigrette topped with blue cheese.

Cheesecakes Unlimited’s home in the old Pine Street School is as fun and fresh as its many delicious salads.
