To Friends near and far,

The Valley experienced our last gift from Mother Nature of heavenly snow, which gratefully only lasted long enough to enjoy and graciously left quickly (Much to our relief!) Spring is slowly awakening and Bernie's Restaurant is bursting with activity!

In January, we introduced a new concept of Bernie's Blackboard Italian Thursday - and you our wonderful customer's have made it a HUGE success! We thank you for coming in to "Manga" with us and enjoying every bite! We will continue with this fun, delicious concept throughout the year. Come in to see Bernie in her element.

On Tuesday's only, starting March 15, 2016 we will re-launch our Valley Tapas serving from 3-7 pm Our locals have enjoyed the beautiful view, Delicious small plates and exceptional quality of $5 boutique wines from many regions near and far. 

Our "Signature" Lunch and Dinner Menus will also be available - peppered with seasonal culinary creations from yours truly, Chef Monda.
