Sonoma County's Original and Best Loved Paella

Visit us at our new restaurant, Gerard's Paella Y Tapas in Downtown Santa Rosa, or hire us to cater your next event.

Featuring fast casual food that every member of the family can enjoy, Gerard’s takes paella, the saffron-infused rice dish native to Spain, to a new level of deliciousness and variety, offering vegetarian, seafood, chicken, and make-your-own meals. In addition to four kinds of paella, Gerard’s menu features light bites and happy hour treats, including bocadillos, salads, papas bravas, charcuterie, croquettes, cheeses, fire-roasted prawns, jamon, and more. Over 80% of the menu contains gluten free options.

Longtime chef and restaurant owner, Gerard Nebesky's culinary career began when he was 23. Looking to open a graphic design business in Grass Valley, he ended up opening a restaurant, The Bohemian Cafe in Occidental. He moved on & always an adventurer, Gerard was influenced when he was introduced to the joys of classic Spanish Paella while skiing in Spain. Once he mastered the art of cooking this dish to perfection, he founded Gerard's Paella Catering & took his passion on the road, where he is happy to introduce others to Spain's most famous dish.
