    Wait until you see the new Borago on the bay. The bar and dining area are on top floor with views forever of the bay. Dinner is as wonderful as ever. The bar is a popular hangout for many locals. One of the top spots in SoWal, imo, if not the very best, for their food, atmosphere, location and service. I haven't had lunch on the deck yet but will do so this fall.

    Tried Goatfeathers again last night. Worst meal I've had in a long time. Terrible.

    Borago's food is very good, but in this new location they draw a redneck element that really can't be ignored. It ruins the place, IMO.

    Actually, I went back Saturday and it had a completely different vibe. Not like Grayton, but certainly not redneck. On my last visit it was full of drunk rednecks wearing ball caps and spewing profanity. Hopefully that was an aberration.

    Let me guess. They were also drinking Budweiser instead of red wine.
    Borago is good, but for their prices, it's not a place many of us go - or if we do, we get a couple of appetizers - ahem, small plates - and share.

    Beer instead of wine? Check.
    Baseball cap? Check.
    Occasionally drunk? Check.
    Occasionally spew profanity? Check.
    Guess I'm a redneck! I make it to Borago about once a year. :)
