Sustainable Solano envisions an environmentally, economically sustainable and equitable local food system for residents across Solano County. In addition to stronger relationships with our farmers through Community Supported Agriculture, supporting local sustainable business and eateries is part of this vision that aims to create healthier families and communities countywide.

BackDoor Bistro and Wine Bar is one of the few gems in the county to deliver holistic, fine dining using locally-sourced, seasonal ingredients. Chef and founder, Lindsey Chelini is a Vacaville native with a degree in business from Humboldt State University and a graduate of the Napa Valley Cooking School in St. Helena. Her journey through the culinary arts and fine wine includes working at a well-known valley Michelin Star restaurant for several years and catering for her father’s wine business.

BackDoor Bistro offers creative, seasonal spins on American and European classics in a rustic, chic space and a variety of wine selections. Hearty, nutritious breakfast options such as Meyer lemon ricotta pancakes, eggs benedict and their famous flat iron hash are local favorites. Perfect for summer, delight in lighter entrees like their fresh, unique salad combinations or indulge in something more robust like cheddar, blue cheese, bacon macaroni and cheese! Dinner will not disappoint with savory specials like shrimp & grits, duck carnita tacos and coconut lime wild Alaskan halibut. Gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan options are available. Happy Hour daily from 5:00pm-6:30pm.
