American | Aptos, Santa Cruz / Capitola / Aptos

Persephone is a family owned resteraunt that goes above and beyond to blend fresh local ingredients into creative dishes. They often offer a pre fixe, along with the standard menu options, that showcases the chef's diversity. I have been several times for special occasions and they have always accommodated modifications for diet issues etc. The staff is professional but warm and welcoming. Definitely a worthwhile night out. More
