Your neighbors, Matt and Michelle Marguiles re-opened the old Country Rose restaurant on Commercial St. in Nevada City, and it is now called Matteo's Public. My main "foodie" friends came up last weekend so we decided to try it out. Good move! I've always loved the building and beautiful garden/patio, and now the food is great too! We all shared fish and chips, which had wonderful tender fish in a really light batter, and wonderfully interesting chips. Four of us noshed the Stinky mac and cheese, and could barely finish the generous helping. We also shared the pulled pork, and salad bar. This of course left room for dessert, and we passed around the Chocolate Truffle Cheesecake, Irish Cream Mousse and Tiramisou. All decadent and wonderful (well, the Mousse was on the light side, and great flavor). Washed it all down with great wine and beer. Service good, atmosphere great, music entertaining, food satisfying. Thanks Matt, that corner needed a new face. I'll be back for the steak sandwich soon! Can't wait to gobble the mac and cheese one cold fall or winter day too!
