Lonely Planet review

The fusion here is done with just the right light touch, giving Mendocino’s menu the sort of refreshing kick you get out of a cool West Coast breeze. Fish comes floating on nutty jasmine rice, framed by meaty mushrooms, while a chard salad has twists of citric bite and chili heat. For all that, we especially love having wine and cheese nights here; whoever picks the stuff out really knows their fromage, which is as modern and refreshing as the interior decor. To sum Mendocino up: this is very fine contemporary California cuisine, which compliments all the contemporary California SUVs driven by all the nearby contemporary California Georgetown undergrads.
