The new restaurant in Port Costa that looked like it might be kept kind of secret for while is about to see a lot of new customers. Mr. Bauer just published his review of Bull Valley Roadhouse on Sunday, and while we haven’t made it there yet ourselves, his big three stars confirm that the place is as promising as it first appeared. Owners Earl Flewellen and Samuel Spurrier renovated the little hotel and restaurant in the tiny town east of Crockett, along the Delta, and they brought in chef David Williams as partner. Williams, who worked at Slanted Door, brought in Erik Adkins to consult on the cocktail list, and Bauer says that everything they’re doing is “so good.” He loves the whole roasted branzino in parchment, the wedge salad, the St. Louis-style pork ribs, the grilled flatiron steak, and the fried chicken.
