Eureka, a new restaurant in downtown Mountain View, highlights local craft beer and whiskeys on a menu of food spanning from sea to farm.

Craft beer and fancy whiskeys headline the menu at Eureka, the new restaurant that opened last week at 191 Castro St. in Mountain View.

While deluxe burgers and truffle fries take their obligatory (and tasty) place on the menu, the offerings span from lobster tacos to slow-roasted pork rib. Part of a chain expanding rapidly across the western U.S., Eureka aims to capture the craft trend that celebrates super-local alcohol with a menu streamlined across corporate locations.

Farmers prepare to market season's bounty

Journeyman farmer Jen Friedlander waters Hidden Villa’s greenhouse plants, which will grow stronger in the controlled indoor environment before being transferred to the field outdoors.

Around Hidden Villa, the greenhouse is known as the “year in miniature.”

Tomatoes, peppers, eggplants and the like flourish as small starter plants in the muggy heat – eventually to be transferred to the ground outdoors in warmer days and then harvested at peak ripeness.
