With its fringed umbrellas, firepits and bocce ball courts, indoor-outdoor bar and clubby dining room, Shangri-la, which opened in June, is like a miniature resort. Owner Sommer Peterson, whose San Francisco ventures like the Mission Bowling Club have gained national attention, brings her flair for entertaining to her native Fair Oaks. The mid-century décor channels retro Palm Springs, while the witty cocktail menu helps set the vacay mood. Try the Eastern Promises made with Aloo vodka, pineapple nutmeg shrub, fresh persimmon and bitters, paired with chef Jodie Chavious’ shareable small plates like Japanese milk bread served with bone marrow butter, or the Little Gem salad with persimmon, pomegranate seeds and an almond herb vinaigrette. For a bigger slice of paradise, dig into entrées like a whole branzino with Marcona almonds, olives and pickled golden raisins, or the spare ribs glazed with Korean gochujang sauce and sprinkled with candied cashews and cilantro.
