TUCKED AWAY IN A LEAFY GREEN neighborhood of Victorian-style houses in Grass Valley, Diegos restaurant is a hidden gem. It takes you on a journey to South America with fresh, delicious food, eclectic decor and a shaded patio with colorful plants “A really interesting, tasty little place that I go to whenever I visit Grass Valley,” as one diner puts it. “Funky deliciousness,” adds another. It’s a locals’ favorite, too. We have traveled to Chile and Argentina and can vouch for Diegos’ authenticity: Empanadas filled with savory goodies, grilled meats served with Chimichurri sauce, fresh fish and a “lomito” sandwich of roasted, shredded pork topped with guacamole and tomato, to name a few. The dinner-sized “Ensalata Diego” is a favorite: organic mixed greens, grilled veggies, marinated red onions, fresh green beans, green olives, tomato, guacamole and a hard-boiled egg. It’s topped with your choice of chicken, steak, pork, tofu or barbecued veggies. We invite you to experience the fresh, unique cuisine at Diegos. See you there!
