Dining and Wineries Visit Requests – Mendocino County

Hey Chowhounders:

We are planning a 4-day trip to Mendocino County for some R&R in the first week of March and will be staying at the Fairfield Inn in Ukiah (using my Marriott points so it's free). We have never been to that area and we’re hoping you folks can provide some insights on places to dine and wineries to visit.

I read through some previous entries but there were only a few comments regarding the wine visits, so I’m hoping for an update and an expansion in the dining area and wineries.

Thanks a bunch

  1. For wineries, never been but might try McNabb Ridge and Dunnewood.

    Some spots from my old chownotes, some may not even exist today:

    Kilkenny Kitchen - Chicken Ceasar Sandwich on a "Dutch Crunch" roll, soups
    Ellie's Mutt Hut
    El Azteca Mexican Restaurant
    Ruen Tong Thai
    Jyun Kang - Snow lily dish, dumplings, chow mein, bamboo shoots at City of 10,000 Buddhas Monastery

    1. I would drive south from Ukiah about 10 miles to Hwy 128. Take this out to the coast.Drive through the Anderson Valley. Many wineries along the way.
