Situated in San Francisco's historic Jackson Square, Lindsay and Chef Michael Tusk's celebrated Quince Restaurant features two nightly tasting menus that highlight the seasonal bounty of Northern California. Accompanying each menu is an innovative wine pairing program. A sophisticated cocktail program features innovative, seasonal ingredients and unique, table side preparations. Chef Michael Tusk was named “Best Chef: Pacific” by the James Beard Foundation in 2011. Quince was awarded its second Michelin star in 2013 and in April 2012, the San Francisco Chronicle bestowed a fourth star to Quince.

"The entire experience was perfect. We chose the wine pairing and the caviar and foie gras supplements and they were well worth it. Every course was delicious and such a sensory delight. The wine pairings were inspired. The service charming, informative, and just the right amount. We dine out often, and Quince is the best restaurant we have ever gone to. The evening was a present for one of our parents, and she had a marvelous time."

Farmshop Marin is Jeff Cerciello’s second outpost which opened in 2013 in the heart of the Marin Country Mart in Larkspur. It follows in the footsteps of Farmshop Los Angeles, the acclaimed restaurant and artisan market that opened in the Brentwood Country Mart in 2010. Farmshop Marin features its signature fare of pristine California-centric ingredients and refined yet comforting dishes.<br />The impressive 6,500 square foot space features a comfortable and elegant dining room, outdoor patio, expansive full-bar area seating 50 people, a lounge, a private dining room seating 60, and an open-hearth wood-burning oven and grill. A new gathering space for Marin locals & ferry commuters, the restaurant offers the impeccably-sourced, seasonal California fare Farmshop has come to be known for, with additional pizza, fish and meats fresh from the wood-burning oven and grill. Farmshop Marin serves lunch and dinner daily, and has a vibrant bar scene daily until close.

"We booked Christmas dinner for the family. At $109/person before cocktails or wine, you would think it would be a special experience, but it wasn't. We were seated in a room off of the dining room with uncomfortable chairs and conference tables. Food was mediocre. Service OK, but not up to the price charged for dinner. Overall a very disappointing experience."

"The food and the service at ZUT were outstanding, but the noise level made it impossible to have any conversation at our awkward corner table for 3. I would love to go back for the food and service, but won't because of the noise."
