Ed and I dined together a couple of nights in Ukiah last week (Ed has blogged about the restaurants). He was in trial, I was taking depositions.

He defensed a medical marijuana trial – the first and probably the last in Mendocino County. The jury was out for all of an hour before coming back with a defense verdict.

As to the restaurants, Ed has yet to try an excellent Japanese place. Can’t think of the name, but it’s on one of the off streets a block or two south of the courthouse. Great atmosphere. Excellent food. I would probably rate it number one, although both Patrona’s and the Thai place on the main drag rate closely.

At Patrona’s I strongly recommend the Gorgonzola, walnuts, and fig pizza. And Ed is right about the wine choices.
