Former Sonoma restaurateur killed

Lake County hit and run to blame

The town of Sonoma is mourning the loss of Zino Mezoui, a longtime presence in the town and operator of Zino’s on the Plaza. The 57-year-old moved his restaurant to Lake County in 2006.
Sonoma Town Hub blogger James Marshall Berry wrote this about the death:

Zino Mezoui, 57, owner of Zino’s Ristorante and Inn in Kelseyville, died from injuries sustained in a Friday morning collision with a vehicle at Highway 29 and Siegler Canyon Road. According to a report in the Lake County News online, The California Highway Patrol and the District Attorney’s Office were investigating the crash on Friday, with the driver of the vehicle fleeing the scene afterward, as Lake County News has reported. As of Sunday, no arrests in the case had been reported.

CHP Officer Dallas Richey said Friday that Mezoui had been flown to Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital, where he later died from his injuries.

  2. I had the pleasure of working with Zino back when he had his restaurant on the Plaza. He was charming, gracious and handsome. He lived for his children. He will be missed.

  3. The scumbag loser who killed Mr. Mezoui finally turned himself in. James Nightingale, age 30. I hate it when scumbag losers like James Nightingale kill achievers like Mr. Mezoui. Doesn’t seem right.
