SCOMA'S Sea Food Restaurant: Don't Miss The Fresh Seafood
We did not eat at this restaurant so I can't give an opinion ,on the food .
It was a very busy place ,I did notice that the parking was very limited at this resaurant
It is located on the main street in Sausalito but it is build on poles in the water and the view of the Bay from here looks fantastic.
Avatars: The only place for Marindian food
This is one of my favorite restaurants anywhere. It's tiny, it's family run, there's often a line to get in at lunch and for dinner. There's nothing fancy about the decor. But Kala and Ashok will show you some of the best food you could ever taste.
Avatars is run by an Indian family, with Avatar being the father of the family. Sadly, Avatar died a couple years ago. However his widow, Kala and his nephew, Ashok, still run the restaurant without any other changes.
They claim to make Marindian food (Marin is the name of the county in which this restaurant resides). The first chef was Jamaican, adding a Jamaican flavor to their Indian dishes. Then they decided to use fresh California style ingredients and started making dishes with a slightly Mexican flair.
You can expect to find "punjabi-style" burritos, tostadas and enchiladas, in addition to traditional curries, lassis, home made carrot pickle and chutneys.
Favorite Dish: Jerk style chicken tostada. Take a chappati and place on top of it some jerk-style chicken, melted cheddar cheese, yoghurt sauce, tamarind sauce, carrot pickle, green chutney and fresh fruit chutney and you've got one of the most mouth-watering dishes you can imagine.
My sister's favorite is their lamb-pumpkin enchilada.
And you MUST order dessert. They only have one dessert: a slice of ice-cream pie. The crust is made of chocolate cake crumbs, the ice cream is pistachio with roasted pistachios covering the top. The slice of pie is surrounded by pools of mango, raspberry and rose-petal purees. UNBELIEVABLE.
Poggio Trattoria: Tasty Italian food with great people watching
Poggio Trattoria is a tasty new addition to Sausalito. Beautifully designed, the ambiance is warm and inviting. Outside seating is available, with heaters to ensure your comfort.
The food is very tasty, and the prices moderate, which is surprising for a good restaurant that's right on the main street of Sausalito, a touristy town.
It's always busy, and reservations are HIGHLY recommended.
Do try some of their signature cocktails while you're there.
Favorite Dish: I've had a few things so far, and I think my favorites are the roasted pork loin. It melds with its sauces and vegetables absolutely perfectly. For an appetizer, their salad of arugula, toasted walnuts, figs, goat cheese and honey is marvelous.
While they smell wonderful, each time we've had the artichoke, onion and/or pepper fritti, they've been too greasy and could have used more sauce.
Christophe: Are you sure we're not in Paris?
All the atmosphere of a Parisian bistro, without the cigarette smoke. Very tasty, traditional and contemporary French dishes with a short, but tasty wine list. For the quality of food they serve, and the intimate and friendly atmosphere, their prices are amazingly low.
Get there between 5:30 and 6, and you can have the early bird special for $14.95. After that, there's a prix fixe menu for $22, or of course there is an a la carte menu.
Enough off the beaten path for tourists not to find, this is a hang out for locals in the know.
Favorite Dish: On Valentine's evening, my sweetie brought me to this gem. We'd meant to go there so many times, but we just hadn't gotten around to it. That will NOT happen again. What lovely staff, delicious food and a comfortable atmosphere. The meal included, everything wonderful:
Green & white asparagus avec brioche heart and tomato sauce
Endive salad with black figs, watercress, blue cheese and lemon vinaigrette (the BEST!!)
Monk fish en brioche with mashed beet tartlettes, haricots-verts tied in bacon
Dark and light chocolate mousse with strawberry hearts
Mark's meal differed in that he had the veal medalions and apple slices with calvados reduction instead of the fish.
And a great bottle of French red wine, of course...
Lapperts Ice Cream: Some of the best ice cream you'll find anywhere
Tasty ice cream available only here and in one or two other shops, sold by the scoop. Flavors straight from Hawaii including passion fruit, macadamia nuts, coconut, mango and of course chocolate, white chocolate, coffee, etc. Try it - you'll love it.
Fish & Chips: I love the smell of malt vinegar in the morning
This place has been there FOREVER. At least, longer than I've been alive. Now, I'm sure they don't have the same owners at this point. However, the fish and chips are just the same, year in, year out. If you're in the mood for some good fish and chips, stop on in. They've also got the local favorite ice cream, Lapperts. Yum!
Favorite Dish: Fish and chips, of course!
Feng Nian: Decent Chinese food at a good price
This place serves good Chinese food. It's got a nice decor as well, and plenty of tables. It's not the best place around, but it's consistently good and, if you're looking for fair prices for food in a pretty expensive tourist town, this is your place. You can get an inexpensive lunch combination and walk away with left-overs.
Favorite Dish: Princess prawns. Mmmm.
Napoa Valley Burger Company: Local beers from Napa Valley
its worth to taste the local wine from Napa Valley.
Sausalito is dotted with wineries thus local wines and beers are a must along with any meal here.
Favorite Dish: Beer and wine.
