How about some suggestions for 101 from Santa Rosa to the Oregon border?

    The 30-mile stretch of 101 from Santa Rosa up to Cloverdale and the border with Mendocino County is covered on the San Francisco board. You might want to check there for past reports on the towns of Windsor, Healdsburg, Geyserville, and Cloverdale.

        We had excellent small plate food in this odd looking, attractively restored restaurant: sweet potato fries (home made, not frozen) with a South western inspired sauce, great little lamb chops cooked perfectly for me, and a good if not exciting greens, pear, pecan and goat cheese salad. I'd happily go back to Avalon if I was ever stuck in Eureka.

          Hey ricopico, welcome to the board, nice to have a local perspective chime in. It's been a few years but we had a couple of great meals at the casino along with excellent wine last visit.
