Situated on a quiet stretch of coastline, just south of Little River, the Ledford House is Mendocino county’s most exclusive table to snag. Live jazz musicians serenade the setting sun as lovers toast the Pacific Ocean just outside the large windows.
Chef Lisa Geer’s starters, like duck pate topped with lavender jelly, introduce diners to the caliber of the cuisine. Notable entrees include a beautiful rabbit dish paired with parsnips, and a nightly seafood special. The deal to score is the nightly “bistro special,” three courses for $30.
Not wanting to splurge on a big dinner? Pull up a seat at the bar, order a glass of wine and a couple appetizers, and enjoy the mellow vibe of Mendocino fine dining scene.
