Uneda Eat...Point Arena, CA
I prefer my own cooking to roughly 90% of the dining establishments I've visited, and I try not to gush too much when I find an establishment that breaks into the 10%. But this guy has really, really, really got it goin' on in Point Arena. His balance is inventive and dead-on the money, all his charcuterie(including the bacon) is prepared on premise by his own hand, and he is a master of the braised green. In the past I've re-shuffled an entire ride just so I would be able to dine at Uneda.

Quinoa/chick pea fritters with sambal sauce and slaw.

Charcuterie plate...prosciutto, dry sausage, and pork pate with mustard sauce. All hand made on premise.

The BEST duck confit I've ever had with braised Kale and bacon.

If you find yourself on the Mendocino Coast and want a real culinary treat at a non-pretentious venue with good service...this is your guy.

RE: Uneda Eat...Point Arena, CA
Just can't say enough about this Uneda guy. His dishes display a culinary balance one does not often find...

Naming a song or musical piece as my "favorite" would be silly and meaningless. What I want to hear/feel at a particular time/place is very much dependent on my mood. Similarly, naming a dish or dining establishment as my "favorite" would be equally silly and meaningless...but this guy comes about as close as one can come to shattering that trope.
