Best Business Lunch

Whether meeting at the College View Drive restaurant or the new and remarkable Market Street location in the downtown Mall, you’re bound to impress that prospective client.

A full menu of sandwiches, soups and other delightful fare is only half the attraction. Spacious, but cozy tables allow you to discuss business in a casual, but productive manner. The friendly staff is quick too a suggestion and quicker to get your order out.

And on a nice sunny afternoon, what better way to meet than outside on The Promenade?

Clearie’s Restaurant and Lounge

1325 Eureka Way, Redding; 530-241-4535 

www.cleariesrestaurant.com 

A dinner at Clearie’s Restaurant and Lounge only feels like you’re in the big city.

After all, the menu looks like something you’d . nd at

a 5-star New York or Los Angeles restaurant.

At Clearie’s you can start with a tempting appetizer of steamer clams or fried mozzarella caprese and drinks before diving in to an entree that tastes as good as it sounds.

The only problem might be picking something o the

expansive Clearie’s menu. From grilled salmon to pan

seared duck to a . let mignon or a downright sublime

French onion mac-n-cheese, Clearie’s makes it hard to

choose. But when you . nally do, rest assured that the

quality comes through in each delicious bite.

But make sure to save room for dessert like the sinful bananas foster, crème brulee or apple pie chimichanga.
