Finally—a one-stop shop for a quinoa burger, an old-fashioned, and fixing that wobbly wheel. OK, so the mash-up of a bike shop with a farm-centric restaurant and bar is an unlikely one, but the result delivers a needed jolt to the Calabasas food scene. With steampunk fixtures and a deck set over a sylvan creek, the space is an eyeful. Ingredient sourcing is key: The beef in the burger was grass-fed in Lompoc, spot prawns hail from Santa Barbara, breads are baked in-house. The menu is an exciting read—smoked chicken and shishito flatbread, sopa de mariscos—but the reality can be more mixed (too little dressing here, a crumbly bun there). Still, this place has heart. » 23504 Calabasas Rd., 818-225-8231 or pedalersfork.com.
