Top Pick | Gasperetti’s Restaurant and G Spot
1013 N. First St., Yakima
The cuisine of this Yakima Valley fine dining institution — it’s in its 62nd year of business with 45 of those years in the same location — is inspired by a blend of owner John Gasperetti’s family roots in Tuscany and the family’s long-established Northwest presence.
Popular entrees include its dungeness crab cannoli, fresh fish and its filet mignon. The restaurant’s dining room area provides a quiet and elegant atmosphere for special occasions with dinner entrees in the $10.50 to $31 range while its G Spot bar and bistro provides a more lively atmosphere for social occasions and some good food bargains for its happy hour (The full dining room menu is also available). At the bar, try the onion rings — the recipe dates back to the restaurant’s start more than sixty years ago.
