A Roadside Accident
I always used to love to stop at the Nut Tree -- roughly half way between Sacramento and San Francisco on Hwy. 80. I enjoyed the restaurant with good food in a 1960 modern pavilion setting. I used to time the drive so I could go by for lunch or dinner.
After years of declining business -- probably done in by the proliferation of drive-through dining -- the Nut Tree shut down a few years ago and the large piece of property just outside of Vacaville sat empty.
Recently I'd read the "new" Nut Tree had opened on the site of the original. Today as I was driving from Sacramento to Petaluma I pulled off the freeway to see what all the excitement was all about.
