I’m reaching back, but long before Gerry and I moved to the Mendocino Coast (maybe as far back as 25 years), we came to love the Little River Restaurant, a tiny 6-8 table restaurant with two seatings next to the Little River Post Office. The chef/owner back then was Jamie Griffiths, the current chef-owner of 955 Ukiah in Mendocino Village. We liked everything about it — the food, quaintness, ambiance, price. It was one of our favorites. After Jamie, a number of owners have run restaurants there. I haven’t dined at Le Petite Rive, the latest iteration yet, but San Francisco Chronicle reader Kenny Yip from Berkeley raved about chef-owners Troy and Melanie Barrett’s five-course dinner. Open about a month, this is the first review I’ve seen. I’m interested to hear what others say. We’ll keep you updated.
