Anna's: Gold nugget in Gold Beach, Oregon
If you take to the road looking for unique culinary experiences as I do, I'm happy to report I hit gold on the beautiful southern Oregon coast. This tiny, family operated bistro restored my faith in the idea that you could find well prepared, tasty food outside of metropolitan areas. Peter the chef clearly enjoys wine. He takes as much care with his wines-by-the-glass list as with his entrees. Who serves a local Oregon pinot noir AND a CHINESE red blend? (China Silk.) I mean, when did you last see glasses of good wine for $4, $5 or $6? Menu changes with what's fresh, but we enjoyed their black cod in phyllo and their perfectly pink tri tip.
The prices are low and the integrity is high.
By the way, if you dig the few Art Deco tables in the restaurant, know that the chef made those, too! Only in a small town! Go to Anna's for some nice hospitality, a glass of interesting wine and a memorable meal.
