Mineral quite a find in Gold Country
The Modesto Bee
For those prospecting for a new dining gem, heading to the Sierra foothills like the Gold Rush miners once did could result in quite a culinary find. Although the region has many promising places to explore, visitors to Murphys should hit it big if they can locate the Mineral Restaurant.
Of course, once folks find their way to this old Gold Country town along scenic Highway4, it shouldn’t be too tough to find the Mineral because it sits on the town’s tiny main street. Formerly home to a burger joint, the space has been completely revamped. It features a sleek interior accented with artwork and new lighting — urban style meets the foothills. There’s even a sidewalk patio and exhibition kitchen for those who want to watch the action.
