Many available lunch or dinner
This is our favorite sushi restaurant! Their fish is fresh, the choices many and generous portions. We've enjoyed take-out sushi many times - they beautifully arrange our selection on large round platters when asked. Additionally, we go frequently for their Bento box lunch.

A great chef that sources local ingredients. The menu is petite and selective, many things are house-made. House-made items include: bread - delish (sold to the public Friday and Saturdays), pastas and charcuterie (they make their own salami/sausage).

Approximately 40 miles from Pajaro Dunes, this beautiful river valley in the Santa Lucia range is one of the finest wine-growing regions in California. Bernardus Winery, one of our favorite chardonnays, is located here and has a couple of great restaurants. Peppered with wineries and restaurants we enjoy a warm, valley drive now and then.
