A Weekend Guide to Mendocino County

Mendocino County and its artsy namesake town are home to some long-standing food stars: Cafe Beaujolais (and its indie Brickery bakery) and the MacCallum House, to name a couple. This famed part of Northern California coast woven between wine country, redwood forests and the Pacific Ocean is a fog-laden destination with a slowed pace and cuisine focused on local, mindful sourcing and worldly inspiration. That means boundless organic vegetables, line-caught fish and winery darlings like Navarro and Roederer Estate paired with hearty meats and sauces.
