New Moon Cafe in Nevada City is one of those restaurants you just wait for a special occasion to finally arrive so you can treat yourself to a fabulous dinner out. But if your birthday or anniversary was last month, perhaps you should take yourself to lunch on the deck. New Moon is open for lunch Tuesday through Friday (11:30-2) and open for dinner Tuesday through Sunday, reservations recommended. Buzz and Peter are constantly updating their seasonally fresh menu, try the Niman Ranch house-made Lamb Burger with Chèvre, caramelized Onions & Aîoli or the fresh ravioli of the day. And what’s a decadent lunch without dessert? My personal favorite is the Crème Brûléee, but for this photo shoot I decided to branch out and try the fresh sorbet and now I’m not sure what’s my first choice. I had such an enjoyable lunch with my photography assistant Sasha I’d like to have a giveaway for 2 desserts at New Moon*, that way you can come back and tell me what is your recommendation. Please post a comment on this blog post and I’ll draw the winner on Friday, August 16th.
