Manka's Inverness Lodge


Just an hour north of San Francisco is the beautiful Point Reyes National Seashore. With coastal hills, endless white sand beaches and many hiking trails that crisscross through 80,000 acres, Manka's Inverness Lodge seems like the perfect fit. Located in a quirky former hunting lodge, the restaurant and inn is a culinary delight where the food is always fresh, seasonal, local and strictly organic... The menu features whatever is the freshest and ripest within a thirty-mile radius and dinner depends on what the local farmers, foragers, trappers and hunters bring to the back door. With "leaves of local chard wrapped around coastal goat's milk fromage blanc served with crimson Bolinas beets and cipollini" and "a soup of Peter's potatoes and Warren's arugula" it is a "foodies" heaven. Blue cheese from a nearby dairy is paired with fresh grilled pumpkin bread and followed by "an ice of coastal cream sweetened with West Marin honey, scooped over wild Inverness huckleberries" and "ribboned with the doctor's deep chocolate." Make sure you have a reservation, especially if you plan to spend the night. It is recommended that you make them several months in advance. Decide to try Manka's? Let us know what you think!
