Three new Mendocino restaurants have opened in Northern Wine Country: Saucy in Ukiah, Aquarelle Cafe and Wine Bar in Boonville and Hopland Ale House in Hopland.

At Saucy (108 W. Standley St., Ukiah, 707-462-7007) Chef Mitchel Mount, an alum of Tra Vigne and la Brea Bakery has teamed with restaurateur Cynthia Ariosta and former Iron Horse winemaker/owner Forrest Tancer to create an urban oasis in this emerging restaurant town. The menu features wood-fired pizzas, small plates of meatballs or burrata, crispy kale Caesar and pizza “sandwiches” for lunch.

Aquarelle in Boonville

In Boonville, private chef Christina Jones brings together a fusion of flavors to Cafe Aquarelle(14025 Hwy. 128, Boonville, 707-895-2767). Recent menus include Berkshire pork chops with apple-caramelized onion chutney and buttermilk mashed potatoes ($18) to truffle fries with house made aioli ($8) and skillet prawns with garlic butter and white wine ($13).

Just-opened Hopland Ale House serves up pub classics like Ale House Chili, pastrami sandwiches and chicken taco salad along with live entertainment and a variety of micro-brewed beers (13351 S. Highway 101, Hopland, 707-744-1255).

  1. Haven’t been yet to the other two, but Saucy is worth the trip to Ukiah to experience and enjoy. It’s small though so I suggest you call ahead. Sophisticated favors, excellent preparation and warm friendly service.
