San Anselmo’s first Michelin Star restaurant! Definitely make a reservation ahead of time for this popular, delicious dining destination. They do often have walk-in space available for small parties later in the evening, so just give them a call if you are feeling spontaneous. Ron and Kimberly will warmly welcome you into their very special restaurant.

Day Trips & Destinations
We are in the heart of beautiful Marin County. Of course San Francisco is fun, and a quick drive or Ferry ride away, but check the weather! If it’s cold and foggy in the City, there’s plenty to do in sunny Marin!
Check the schedule and leave your car on this side of the bridge. The fast ferry to SF is a beautiful 30 minute journey across the Bay. With the Marin Country Mart on this side, and The San Francisco Ferry Building on the other side, the Larkspur Ferry is an easy alternative to the busy Sausalito Ferry.

9 miles to the North, Sausalito is a classic destination, with unparalleled views of the SF skyline, touristy trinket shops and some hidden gems. For a real treat, try the famous Sushi Ran on Caledonia, make the effort to find Fish, enjoy happy hour at Seafood Peddler, play a round at Bar Bocce, have a beer and a fried chicken sandwich at the Joinery. Keep driving through town and make a loop into the Marin Headland. As always, CHECK THE WEATHER! Bay Area Micro-climates can bring 4 Seasons in a day. Anywhere near the coast has a chance or wind and fog, even(especially) if it’s 90 degrees inland

You are so close! Do not miss the most sublime and beautiful part of the Bay Area Coastline. Plan a full day hike, a short loop, or a day on one of the pristine, serene beaches. Even when it’s “crowded”, it’s not crowded. You can walk for miles on Limantour Beach, hide in a nook on Heart’s Desire Beach.
