It all started in the Spring of '03. I, Lowell Sheldon, was cooking at a rustic Italian restaurant in Seattle when one evening, over a glass of wine after work, I started to bat around a crazy idea. I had just finished college and was planning to move home to Sebastopol. With dreams of starting my own restaurant, it was that evening I began to wonder if just maybe the time was right.
Opening our doors in October '07, we are now in our 4th year of business. Together with Chef Daniel Kedan and the entire crew, we are at our core an expression of our passion for traditional Italian recipes and our desire to have a sustainable impact on Sonoma County. Peter Lowell's, a West County restaurant, features only the finest organic ingredients available. During summer months over 60 percent of our produce comes from Sander's Field Farm, our own fully dedicated, Certified Organic, farm just 2 miles from our restaurant. Our slightly off-kilter attitude towards business--one in which people, animals, and the environment come before profits, organic is a way of life, and the highest quality cuisine is a top priority--is in keeping with our community's standards.
So here we are, after many long nights of dreaming and many tireless days of building the business from the ground up. Please join us at Peter Lowell's in celebrating our friends, family, sustainability, and some of the most exciting new world cuisine this side of the Mississippi.
