New Moon Cafe in Nevada City

Wednesday, February 25th, 2009

Friday night we had dinner for two at the New Moon Cafe in Nevada City. We have enjoyed the New Moon for years – they never disappoint! They have a seasonally changing menu with lots of Nevada County local organic food. The wine list is excellent, with one of the best selections in Nevada County. There are a variety of wines from many regions, locally and throughout the world. You can always find a food and wine pairing to satisfy your palette.  The desserts are decadent.

I ordered the Meyer Lemon Chicken dish for my entre and found the chicken to be cooked perfectly and the veggies were tasty. My husband sampled the ravioli of the day, which was filled with cheeses, olives, sundried tomatoes, and lots of other good stuff. We shared a crab cake for starters which we both enjoyed.

Next time you’re looking for a great night out in Nevada City, make reservations at the New Moon Cafe.

Where to find local weather information?

Wednesday, February 18th, 2009

Because of our location, geography, and variances in elevation, I often find it difficult to get accurate forecasts and information about our local Nevada County weather from the major weather websites and other weather news sources. But, there is a local man who is a weather expert and studies and posts almost daily information (and often several times per day) for a hobby that can benefit us all!

Visit this local Nevada County weather blog for weather predictions, videos, photos, and information about current weather in the Grass Valley and Nevada City areas.
