We popped into lefty’s for a relaxing dinner, and I would definitely recommend the spinach salad. It was amazing. Fresh, Chris and favors were very balanced. I’ll be thinking about it for a while!

Lefty's Grill is a fantastic place for Lunch or Dinner. It is a short walk from the main part of Nevada City, and well worth the walk. There is parking across the street, and you will have a very relaxing meal.
