Nevada City - where to eat?

Please give me your recommendations!

  1. Just Nevada City? Which meal and what are you looking for?

    1. Citronee for upscale & I think it's called the Big A in Grass Valley for great root beer floats & every kind of humongous & delicious hamburger you could imagine. There's lots of recs for both places, but most are 2 -3 years old unfortunately.

      1. Welcome to Chowhound. A tip: when you're looking for recommendations, just type your destination into the "search this board" option at the top of each geographically pertinent board.

        Chowhound then churns through the archives and spits out a resource page listing last posts first. You can indicate how far back you want the search to go.

        Pick those that sound good and start reading. If you want to know more about using the search function or other chowhound functions, go to the "Site Talk" or "Techical Help" boards and browse, or pose a question. Lots of helpful answers from either the moderators or other 'hounds will ensue. This is a collection of people serious about finding good chow. Best board community I've ever read.

        That said, here is a fairly recent thread:

        Have fun and please report back on your trip. We're counting on you to add to the forum!

        1. My last few meals at the New Moon have been disappointing and I think the service has really declined. I find the wine list very expensive and not that interesting. I think I've given up on them. My last meal at Citronee was much better in all respects by comparison.

            Here is a website for some places in NC...

            I can tell you about most of them. Starting at the bottom of Broad Street and working our way up.

            Stonehouse. Beautiful building. Great food. Very nice. I like it a lot myself and if I was to have one upscale meal in NC this would be ther place.

            Across the street is Dos Banditos. Very good high end Mexican. Great patio overlooking the river..Best place for mexican.

            Up the street is the National Hotel. Old school hotel restaurant. Steaks etc. decent but I only go here for the specials and coupons. Not the best. If you have an unadvenurous diner with you this might be the place for them.

            There is a new place farther up on the same side (N) is a new place, Lefty's Grill that people have really raved on around here but I have not been since it was Citiizens.

            Next up is Cirinos. Nice place, loud as hell usually. Good food good service. I like the atmosphere and the food is pretty good, but isn't over priced.

            Las Katarinas is next up the hill. I don't like it at all. Over priced run of the mill, nothing exciting mexican food. But, lots of people do eat here, locals included so they must have something I don't see.

            Back down the hill, on the other side of Broad street is Freds' chinese. Not much. passable chinese but I go to the place at the Brunswick Basin for the good stuff.

            There are a couple of new places on that side that I have not been too so I have no idea about them.

            There is a candy ice cream place on the corner.

            Classic Cafe is great for breakfast.

            Around the corner is Friar Tucks. Like the Stonehouse in quality of food. Clubby, dark dining room, more intimate. For me #2 choice in town.

            Farther up on Broad street is Citronee Bistro. Great place, seasonal foods locally grown etc. Very inventive cooking. wine bar.

            Pos Nosh.Never been.

            New Moon. Not my place. people rave on it, but I can't do that.

            On Commercial Street is Cafe Mekka. great coffee. great place to get an idea of the area.

            The burrito place next door, Tortilla Grill is very good. Great healthy mexican food. One of my faves in town.

            Sushi-Q. great japanese food and sushi. Pricey as all get out though.

            On Spring Street is another sushi place that is really good. Again pricey but it is very good fresh sushi.

              Just learned from a visit this weekend, Stonehouse and Country Rose have both closed.
