RIP Manka's

MissLudmillla & I had a fantastic dinner at Manka's Inverness Lodge in early December, during our much-needed Marin weekend escape, and now I am very glad indeed that we had the chance, as it has burned to the ground in what seems to be a freak wind accident.

It was very beautiful inside, all old dark wood, battered pewter and old California money -- it was too dark for us to see much outside -- and the food, very nearly all extremely local, was amazing and delicious.

I am sad. I hope they reopen... it won't be the same, but perhaps it can still be lovely.
