Great place for a birthday dinner in Mendocino?
Sadly, the recession has really hurt the Mendocino area. Many of the places we liked up there have closed.
The best, every time we've gone, is always Cafe Beaujolais. Amazing, beautiful, satisfying food.
Outstanding breakfasts at MacCallum Inn. On a nice day you get a wonderful view across the town towards the ocean. Great housemade breads and jams.
Mendocino’s Stanford Inn’s Raven does a well-regarded vegetarian/vegan menu: http://www.ravensrestaurant.com/dinne...; but it’s south of Mendocino’s main drag, so a drive, not a walk.
