This is Part One of our culinary journey since we can only post one link and image file per post.
Hello fellow Chowhounds! My wife and I just returned from Very Northern California and we would like to share with you three very good restaurants in the event that you visit the area and are looking for some very good places to eat. There arent too many good restaurants in Very Northern California we discovered so we thought wed save you the agony of eating in a hovel by letting you in on our experience. The titles of these posts have the name of all the restaurants we ate at so that you can look it up on the find feature on your browser. LaGrange Café is spelled also La Grange Café. This is so you can locate it either way you spell it.
Begin Part One:
We drove to the Hopland Inn in Hopland, CA. This is 101 miles north of San Francisco on U.S. 101. We called in advance and made reservations since this is one of only a few very good restaurants in Hopland. The drive was beautiful! My wife had the Pan-Roasted Rosie Chicken with Spinach & Bread Salad and Citrus Vinaigrette for $16. I had the Slow Braised Lamb Shank with Sweet Onion Risotto and Rosemary Jus for $17. The food was bountiful and delicious. The setting was intimate and upscale. Dress is semi-formal. The service was a little slow, but that was fine considering we werent in a hurry.
