Late Night Menu Available Through November Only

The Late Night Menu will be available through the weekends in November, but will no longer be available for the winter months.

Our Late Night Summer Menu was such a hit that we extended the hours through the Fall.  The menu and extended hours (10:30pm on Fridays and Saturdays) will be available the weekend after Thanksgiving.  However, as of December 1st, our regular business hours will resume.

The dining room and bar food will be available until 9:30 on Fridays and Saturdays for the rest of the season.

We look forward to having the late night menu available again next Summer!

Happy Halloween Nevada City!IMG_4697

Friar Tuck’s does Halloween right.  This year we are supporting adult “Trick or Treating”.
When your bartender asks you “Trick or Treat” the decision is up to you….

Try the Trick Cocktail for a boozey-bourbon surprise, or try the Treat Cocktail if you have more of a sweet tooth. Either way you can’t go wrong with these delicious drinks!

Nevada City Uncorked, on Saturday August 29, is a walk-about-town style wine and food tasting featuring 20 different venues throughout the downtown area.  And this year, we will be one of the participating venues.  Each venue, whether it is a retail shop, restaurant, winery tasting room, B&B, or other unique location, will include tasting and food sampling.

Friar Tuck’s will be featuring beautiful seared scallops in our house made balsamic reduction & basil oil topped with fresh local heirloom tomatoes.  We are partnered with Gray Pine Winery and will be featuring their wines paired with our food. Gray Pine just won 4 medals at the California State Fair this year so we are very much looking forward to show casing their wines.
