Bay seniors with an appetite for dining in the primeval depths of a redwood forest might want to reserve a table at Shadowbrook in Capitola. Established in 1947 it’s still till there hanging above Soquel Creek right before the stream spills into the Pacific. Shamelessly retro it’s planted on a lush garden hillside. Paths wind up to it, or if you’re with grandkids, take the funicular. The menu is short and pricey (NY Steak $40, Lobster $30). The place is still spectacularly romantic.
