5200 Restaurant

The Heritage House is a beautiful resort on the Mendocino Coast. It was the location for "Same Time, Next Year" starring Alan Alda and Ellen Burstyn from 1978.

The Registration Building, also housing the restaurant and lounge. We arrived at 5 pm and enjoyed Happy Hour in the lounge. Happy Hour is from 4-6 pm every day and features a house Chardonnay and Cabernet for $5/glass. We're not Chardonnay fans and ordered the Cab. I could tell it was a young cab when the waiter brought the glasses and the bubbles were purple. It was not a good cab.

One of the special appetizers of the night was Tuna Tartare--$15. It was mixed with avocados, watermelon radish, apples and pine nuts. The dish was missing something but when I added a little extra salt, it was much better.

Special soup of the day--lobster bisque for $9. This had a really nice flavor but would've been better with some lobster pieces in it.

Caesar Salad--$10. The lettuce was crispy and the dressing had just a hint of anchovies. The croutons were very tasty.

Penne Pasta with Housemade Italian Sausage, Kale, Cauliflower and Garlic Butter--$18. The pasta was al dente but it was drizzled with Balsamic Vinegar. I'm not sure the vinegar worked with the dish. Also, I couldn't taste the garlic butter.

Steamed PEI Mussels with White Wine, Shallots, Chorizo and Cream--$18. I liked the chorizo flavor with the mussels.
