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.
I ordered the Crispy Fish Tacos, and the lovely Karry went for the Old School Fish & Chips.
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.
