WOODSIDEgrill is the restaurant at the Gaia Hotel and Spa in Anderson. The Gaia is a whole amazing story in itself, and their restaurant is unique as well. We stopped in recently for lunch, which runs from 11 am to 2 pm.
An elegant match of colors, textures, and artwork lends the restaurant an inviting vibe.
We also admire the Gaia and their restaurant for their commitment to sustainability. Some info about their green practices for the Woodside grill website: The WOODSIDE grille is the region’s only LEED Certified Restaurant. Eco-friendly design features include recycled glass countertops, solar tubes, and sustainably harvested timber. In addition to recycling and composting programs, the restaurant’s non-composted food waste is provided to local farms to feed livestock, a portion of which is used to feed needy families in Shasta and Butte counties.
The Gaia is just about 6 miles south of Redding on Interstate 5, where it crosses the Sacramento River. They have a full bar and Happy Hour specials from 4 to 6 pm currently. They often feature local musicians on the weekend evenings. At events we have attended, their appetizers and hors d’oeuvres are often our favorites. The WOODSIDEgrill has hours and a menu at their website, but you have to scroll around a bit to find it.
A wholly sustainable experience, just a few miles south of Really Redding.
