With the unlimited amount of eateries in Marin County, you would think that there would be no need for anything new. However, that’s not the case at all. As new chefs move to the area and tastes and atmosphere ideas broaden, new restaurants pop up and quickly become local favorites.
Below, The Weekly Yelp has put together a list of the new September restaurant openings in the North Bay, with reviews from those who have already sat down at a table and enjoyed the food. I do hope you will visit them soon!
Sax’s Joint (Petaluma)
After one visit to this new retro diner, Houston S is a Sax addict. “The waitstaff not only look like they are from the ’50s but are sweet and friendly just like what you would expect back then.” Feast on a selection of pancakes, burgers, and malted shakes. Or, try The Brando: a “burger with all the fixin’s, plus fries, all wrapped up in a burrito.”
Woodfour Brewing Company (Sebastopol)
Kelsey M is already a regular at this new brew place. “Unlike most dark and over-crowed breweries,” Woodfour “boasts a casual atmosphere that says, ‘Sit down, sip a really good beer, let your taste buds dance and your eyes wander’.” Menu highlights include gourmet fare like braised oxtail with gnocchi and eggplant “meatballs.”
Foodshed Pizza & Pasta (Napa)
“Finally, a casual hot spot for locals in Napa to get some scrumptious Italian foods!” exclaims Julia A. There’s everything from burrata to potato pizza to spicy arrabiata pasta. This is “not your ‘Americanized’ Italian” so don’t come expecting all-you-can-eat bread sticks. It’s just authentic Italian food “that will knock your socks off!”
Carneros Brewing Company (Sonoma)
Scott B likes to grab a pop at this new cervezeria. Their beer garden is situated around a pond with “nice landscaping and tables for picnicking or kibitzing.” Guests can sign up for a tour of the brewery (includes free beer tasting). “Although I work in the wine business, beer will always be my beverage of choice, and Carneros Brewery will be my brewery of choice.”
Streat Fare (Sebastopol)
John K “loves the brisket sandwich, homemade potato salad, and the lemon cucumber tomato salad” at this BBQ shack. In addition to meat, they offer interesting sides like watermelon salad, appleslaw, and kale with peas. Take your meal to go or dine at one of their picnic tables. You’ll almost forget you’re in the parking lot of Andy’s Produce Market.
