Restaurant
“Best sushi in town hands down. Usually you do have to call in advance for a reservation. However, if they are booked you can show up before they open (I would suggest at least 30 min prior) and put your name down on a waiting list outside the restaurant for bar seating. If show up early enough you should have no problem getting in. ”

American Restaurant
“Friar Tuck’s is a staple of Nevada City, known for fondue. We’re not big fans of it, but it’s not something we normally eat. A generally nice place for dinner with great service - Audry likes the ribs, and John is partial to the duck. ”
