The much-loved Thomas Hill Organics Bistro recently expanded into an adjacent space which is now the Thomas Hill Organics Wine Lounge. The acquisition also redirected the location of the popular restaurant’s entrance, which is now directly on Park Street in downtown Paso Robles.
Featuring a comprehensive and creative wine and beer list, the new THO Wine Lounge now offers table service overseen by Wine and Service Director, Serena Harkey. Regular specials and wine by the 1-oz. taste or by the glass allow diners to explore the full array of Harkey’s wine list in the same rustic-chic ambiance as the original Thomas Hill Organics Bistro.
While THO’s layout and scope of service may have changed, Chef Julie Simon’s menu remains as original and distinctive as ever. Eclectic dishes like Pan-Roasted Alaskan Halibut with Arugula and Carrots Salad, Cara Cara Oranges, Roasted Kumquats, Kumquat Olive Oil, Spicy Harissa, Coriander Crème Fraiche, and Cumin-Spiced Almonds continue to provide the heart of the THO experience.
“Expanding into the wine lounge space is a response to the popularity of what we’ve done over the years, the freshness of the ingredients and the creativity of Julie’s menu,” said proprietor, Debbie Thomas, who opened Thomas Hill Organics in 2009 as a delicious way to show off locally-grown organic produce, grains, and proteins.
Thomas Hill Organics also continues to cater for a wide array of functions including birthday celebrations, wine events, weddings and holiday parties. Chef Julie and her team work with clients to design seasonally-inspired menus that create a one-of-a-kind experience, whether on the THO fully-covered outdoor patio, in a private home, or among the vines at one of the Central Coast’s beautiful wineries.
