Good food, reasonable prices, great service, moderate ambience. Been open since December, and with the Marin Mortality Rate for good French bistros, I'm hoping they last. I can't wait to read Berger's review whenever he gets around to it."

With Jim Leff's plea that we do a better job of self-policing (see Site Talk), I'm moving this to a new thread. Let's give this place the visibility it deserves, instead of burying it in a discussion of Chinese sausage.

Anyone else tried it yet?

    Melanie--I THINK that might be the place in San Anslemo where I played a millenial new year's jazz gig on 12/31/99. If so, I liked the food, wine list, and servers very much. Not chowhoundish (it's not a very good value for the price, and everything's pretty much done via template, albeit skillfully), but a good bite is not easy to find thereabouts.

    I'll ask Jeff Morgan (who led the gig) and repost when I hear from him.

    The place I played was on the south side of the main drag, very close to the dreaded San Anselmo Inn, if that helps.

        Insalata's! Yep, you're right! Thanks!

        I KNOW you weren't there, Melanie, and I'm still annoyed about it!

          Well, I had orchestrated an hommage to Richard Olney's with his favorite wines and foods for Y2K and stuck by my crew.

            Melanie, if you can't drop your impeccable foodie hostmanship shtick for one night -- millenial new year's!! -- and just hang out and listen to jazz and party non-specifically....sigh....well, maybe next millenium!
