Arcata, CA

Wildflower- There aren’t a ton of options in Arcata and Wildflower is a solid vegan restaurant and a short walk from the venue, Arcata Theater. I usually eat at the local Co-op, when traveling through Arcata but this time we wanted more of a sit down vibe before the show. It's very laid back and when we went around 8:30pm on a Friday night there were a few other tables filled with college students but it was surprisingly mellow/empty in there. I went with the ‘Dragon Bowl’ a steamed veggie with soba noodles dish. It was simple and good, I put some sesame seeds in it, which gave it a nice texture and added some hot sauce. The prices are affordable and servers were friendly and they do have organic veggies! Nothing fantastic about this place but a good look for a casual healthy dinner when in Arcata.
