Just across the street from Fairfax’s grassy town park and weekly farmers market sits the modern wine bar and restaurant, 123 Bolinas. A definite player in the slow food movement, 123 Bolinas has everything from seasonal organic veggies to sustainable wines and close ties with farmers in the region. The intimate restaurant feels upscale at first glance, but it’s relaxed inside. The pretty interior lighting, reclaimed wood furniture, and large windows overlooking the nearby park make for one of the best restaurant atmospheres in town.  123 Bolinas doesn’t specifically cater to celiacs, but the waiters are knowledgable about every ingredient and will even have the kitchen whip up something special if the menu that night doesn’t suit your dietary needs. Check the chalkboard for seasonal small plates like grilled peaches, chevre and procuitto served over rocket greens, or order something more substantial like the pan seared rock cod with summer stew, turnip, and sweet peas.
