THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Mendocino Grille & Wine Bar Restaurant Review

: It's not just the name: the wood-and-stone simplicity of this American-style restaurant can almost make you believe you're in one of the most beautiful spots in California rather than in Georgetown. The dinner menu includes Asian-influenced seafood dishes, lamb, chicken and steak entrées. The wine bar features mostly California wines, with at least 20 by the glass, available in two- or five-ounce tasting flights.
