Russian House #1 Restaurant, Jenner, Wine Country/Santa Rosa California

Description

Russian House #1 is an amazing place. Here, you can sit in front of their huge windows overlooking the Russian River as it meets the ocean. The river here is vividly blue, like the sky. It is breathtaking! And as if that weren't enough, the food is delicious!
While you're here, drive a minute north on Highway 1 and peer down at the seal rookery below. It's a lovely wild area.
Just a little south along Highway 1, stop and check out wonderful Whale Point and Goat Beach, for a great stormy beach scene.
If you're heading down the coast along Highway 1, after about 15 miles check out Bodega Bay, with its huge grey harbor and wild windy walks; and head inland a few miles to Bodega where you can see the schoolhouse where "The Birds" was filmed.

Directions

Take Highway 116 towards the ocean. You can do this by exiting the 101 Freeway at River Rd, and heading west.

Once you're near the coast, turn south, following signs to Bodega Bay. Cross over the bridge, and turn left immediately- you will see the restaurant right there overlooking the river.
