Italian | Mill Valley, Marin

We go for dinner here whenever we're going to go to a play at the Marin Theatre Company. Perfect "pre-theater" dining, with fine Italian food. You can spend a little, or more than that. Our server last night was wonderfully attentive---even taking the coffee off the tab when it was served lukewarm at first. More

Farm-to-table | Ross, Marin

Marche Aux Fleurs is one of our favorite restaurants in the Marin and probably in the Bay Area! We were celebrating our 42nd anniversary last night and our dinner was absolutely delicious. The ambiance is always pleasing and cozy. The owner Dan greeted us and the maîtresse d’y showed us to our table. Peter our server is a pro and so friendly. And what a memory-I follow a special food plan and he always remembers what I need and what I don’t eat. We both ordered the wonderful chicken Breast dish they offer with vegetables and potatoes. They only had one left so of course my husband offered it to me and he tried the Fried Chicken with Cole Slaw and Cornbread. He said he’d never had such delicious fried chicken! Totally not greasy. And very crisp. He loved the cornbread which had some great combination of honey and butter baked into the bread. My husband always orders the BLT Salad which apparently is very yummy since there wasn’t any left! We were offered their special chocolate extravaganza cake but we passed as we were so satisfied. Peter knows that I can have fresh fruit so that’s what he brought after asking which ones I’d like. And the coffee is great as well! Holly and Dan have done and continue to do a magnificent job in the little town of Ross. Oh and in the Spring and Summer their outdoor patio is like being in Italy. You will love it! More

El Perol Restaurant is a family-owned eatery in San Rafael that serves generous portions of homemade Peruvian dishes made from scratch with the freshest ingredients and authentic herbs and spices.

Gustavo will greet you when you arrive and your dinner will be lovingly prepared by his sister chef Nancy, who has 20 years of experience and delights meat eaters, fish lovers and vegetarians alike. Some of Nancy’s most requested dishes are Lomo Saltado, Seco de Cordero, Jalea, Pescado a lo Macho, Cau Cau, and Aji de Gallina. Try Peruvian beer with your meal, and end your meal with mouthwatering Peruvian desserts such as Alfajores, Helado de Lucuma, Crema Volteada and more.
