The Chronicle's Michael Bauer found a new Bay Area restaurant to rave about: Sir and Star at the Olema! Let's leave the SF August fog behind & explore the lovely North Bay area around Point Reyes, maybe visit Cowgirl Creamery before dinner, then dine at Sir and Star on their Chef's Meal for $75 (incl 3 courses, plus a cheese course), plus drinks, tax & tip.
Bauer was charmed by the fare at the Olema Inn's new restaurant Sir & Star, where Daniel DeLong and Margaret Grade offer "a fine balance of hominess and sophistication," served at "reasonable prices [that] belie the quality of what DeLong produces." He enjoys the "whimsical menu" of "well executed" bone marrow, "exceptional" quail, and the "comprehensive" Marin-centric wine list, dubbing it "country dining at its best." Three stars, and 3.5 for food. [Chron]
Cancellation fee: If you cancel in less than 24 hours before our scheduled reservation, or simply not come, my card would be charged $50 per person. Therefore, put yourself on the waitlist and I'll select trusted dinner companions! :)
Start at the Nicasio Valley Cheese Co. shop (which is on the way from SF/Marin) at 2:30, buy cheese & browse, next up - the Tomales Bay Oyster Co at around 3:30 or sooner, visiting maybe an hour to enjoy the outdoors & oysters, then visit Cowgirl Creamery at around 4:45pm, after which we can browse the shop and walk the tiny towns of Point Reyes Station and Olema until our 5:30pm dinner.
