Mankas Corner has been a rural grocery, a bar, as well endured several reincarnations as a café or restaurant. This newest version is well on its way to being a destination hot spot for Suisun Valley. The food is very good as is the service. Our fantastic waiter was Ricardo and he was attentive, courteous, and knowledgeable. The lobster bisque missed its mark as it was not served hot enough and the chunks of cheese distracted from the flavor. The beet salad was fresh, colorful, and delicious. Our party ordered the duck and the elk, both highly recommended and perfectly executed. We found the portions to be plentiful and even took home the left overs in a box. The prices on the meals are on par with any good restaurant, although the wine list definitely needs to be revamped to reduce the price points. Many local wineries are featured with price tags as much as four times what you can buy the bottle for in a store or at the tasting room. When diners know wine, they won’t be inclined to pay $36 for an $8 vintage. The backroom needs better lighting, perhaps candles on the tables to make the space more enticing. Mankas is a work in progress and it’s headed in the right direction. We’ll be back to see how they keep improving on a great beginning.
