As of 2011 there's now a 4th restaurant in Marin with a Michelin star, the Lark Creek Inn.
This is the Shaved Vegetable Salad I got. Celery-Dill Vinaigrette killing it and epic fennel and cleverly sliced zucchini and other root veggies. They really take advantage of seasonal quality veggies which is awesome.
I got to sample my other family member's choices as well!
Roasted Beet Salad
This was a standout compared to your average beet salad because it had 'cashew dust' sprinkled on and an epic kale chip on top. And the beets were perfect of course.
Heirloom Tomato Salad
Heirloom tomatoes are on fire right now! and whatever the red and green vinaigrettes they did on this were awesome as well.
Marin Sun Farms Burger
I took advantage of the grass fed red meat on the menu, hold the bun, fries, and aioli (replaced with quality braised carrots/green beans). I'm not experienced with meat enough to know how to describe how good it was, but trust me. You are what you eat, and animals are what they eat. Top notch.
And the main show: Brownies don't even rank high on my list of desserts, but I wanted to try this recipe with some grain free modifications and boy am I stoked!
No good brownie pan = glad because these came out as nice little brownie bites.

You could do a date puree to get rid of the banana flavor if your not a fan. And if they aren't sweet and delicious enough I would make any Avo-Fudge spread but haven't tried it yet (simple avo+cocoa powder+agave mix).
- 1 150z Can Black Beans completely drained
- 1 Banana (mine was mildly ripe, more ripe=more sweet)
- 1T Allspice (out of cinnamon)
- 1/4c+1T Agave Nectar
- 2T Coconut flour (instead of oats)
- 2T Garbanzo flour (instead of oats)
- 1/4c Unsweetened Cocoa
- 1t Vanilla
- 2 egg whites (taking place of 2nd banana)
