Mendo Bistro

Mendo Bistro Review

Everything on this menu is made from scratch, including the bread, pastas, and charcuterie. Though the chef doesn't tout it, his ingredients are nearly all organic, many of them local. In season, the roasted whole crab with three dipping sauces is sensational. A wide selection of pastas includes something for everyone—or, if not, there's the DIY menu: select your protein (beef, chicken, tofu), method of cooking, and sauce. This is a good place for upscale family dining.
