Lefty's Grill is a local favorite of the residents of Nevada City, California. The restaurant is named for the two left-handed chefs of the restaurant. They make all their dishes from scratch, with specialties, sandwiches and more. They have some great weekly specials available to choose from. To get you started to try out the spicy Thai chicken lettuce wraps that are served with ground chicken, mint, cilantro, carrots, cabbage, peanut sauce, fresh lime, and lettuce. They have some amazing pan-seared crab n shrimp cakes served with preserved lemon & cilantro chipotle aioli and cucumber tomato salad. They have some hot and crispy garlic fries that are made to order and tossed with grated parmesan cheese.
A salad is also a popular option for those that want something a little bit more light. The dressings that they offer are a ranch, blue cheese, chipotle vin, white balsamic citrus vin, caesar, tamari garlic sweet chili, and Louis, which is kind of like 1000 island. They have a classic wedge salad with iceberg lettuce, tomato, red onion, gorgonzola cheese, bacon, and a hard-boiled egg. The chopped Asian chicken salad is another great choice with romaine, cabbage, chicken breast, onion, cilantro, mint, carrot & pickled ginger tossed in tamari, sweet chili dressing with peanuts. The crab & shrimp cake Louis is seared crab & and shrimp, with romaine, Louis dressing, avocado, cucumber, carrot, tomato, hard boiled eggs, and lemon.
They also serve some great pizza options, as well as a handful of burgers and sandwiches. They have a gluten free crust for those of you that have some allergies. Stop in any time from Wednesday - Sunday 11:30 am to 9:00 pm.
