Have you tried the Bistro 221? Melissa Bryant, from Cirino’s, took over the old Lefty’s location and opened up a new downtown Nevada City lunch and dinner restaurant. Check their Facebook page for specials and new menus. My research assistant said to try the fried chicken, while the younger crew recommended the chicken strips and fries. The back Assay Room is still available for private parties, give them a call if you’re looking to organize a meeting or birthday party. Bistro 221 has offered up one lucky Outside Inn blog reader a $20 gift certificate. Please post a comment on who’d you take with you if you won and I’ll draw the winner on Saturday, May 18th.
