As if the stupendous selection of fine wines wasn’t enough, now Soif is continuing its prix fixe menu through the entire month of November. To raise awareness about breast cancer — and to help the work of WomenCARE, in Santa Cruz, Soif has created a smart menu of dishes made without added sugars, butter, flour, rice, potatoes or saturated fats of any kind.

Starting with an appetizer of mixed greens with roasted persimmons and toasted hazelnut, the special menu showcases wild Coho salmon en papilotte with shiitake mushrooms, Bloomsdale spinach and cipollini onions. Dessert finishes with sorbets of pomegranate and orange/vanilla.

You are free to choose wines, or follow the suggestions of Soif’s resident experts.

The November prix fixe menu is $41, excl. of tax and gratuity. Dining well for an important cause, yes, it is a good idea.
