What: TSR staple with something-for-everyone California diner eats
Rose: The TSR breakfast, lunch, dinner and biz meeting spot du jour. The menu can be overwhelming and is ultra customizable, perfect for any of your dietary needs. They even have an ingredients binder that you can request that breaks down the ENTIRE menu!

What: West Coast pasta that rivals your nonna’s
