I live half-time in the Mendocino area and have noticed a dearth of good and recent reports on the area! While the whole north coast is still a bit recession-y, there's lots of good stuff going on!

This is by no means a comprehensive report - mostly just top of mind!

***My favorites***

Wild Fish in Little River is easily the best restaurant around. Two years-ish old, in the spot where Le Petite Rive was, they've found their footing and their fresh-fresh-fresh take on fish and vegetables is fantastic.

Piaci's in Fort Bragg for pizza and beer.

Circa 62 in Little River (at the Inn at Schoolhouse Creek) is making great, unusual breakfasts weekends only.

***Totally solid***

MacCallum House restaurant in Mendocino. Some real hits on the menu and a gorgeous dining room. I love Thanksgiving there, in particular.

Patterson's Pub in Mendocino...okay, so the food is hit and miss, but if you stick with the solid pub fare, you'll be happy!

Ledford House...Oysters with pastis, the pate, a glass of wine and a kickass sunset will do just fine.

The Restaurant in Fort Bragg...is a total kick. Like eating dinner in 1978. But that's the charm! And the food is very well-prepared.

***Further afield favorites***

Coq Au Vin in Philo is amazing and worth the out-of-the-way trip.

We've had two memorable meals at Table 128/Boonville Hotel in the past year or so. Can't wait to go back.

Stone and Embers in Philo is knock your socks off amazing. Soooooooooo good. You must go there.

***Not good***
Ummm, I've decided not to say. There are more than a few. Sigh.

Wild Fish
The Publican Windsor
Patterson's Pub
Ledford House
