    There's E&O and Marin Brew Co in Larkspur Landing that's pretty good. I was just at E&O and they're waiving corkage on Wednesday nights. They have a pretty good happy hour too.

    Speaking of HH, I also like the Melting Pot over there for HH, but not dinner. I think it's half off on certain drinks and fondue was like $10 per person.

      I have always enjoyed Shushiko, both for sashimi and for their cooked items. That is where I would go if I found myself in Larkspur Landing with a long wait for a ferry.
      Link below.
      Meanwhile, I like the beer at Marin Brewing a lot more than the food. As for E&O, I would like to hear some comments on food there, favorite dishes, etc. I have passed by the LL location as well as the Sutter St place, but somehow it just looks too fusionist to be very appealing. I could change my mind, of course, with encouragement.

        Second on Sushi Ko. That was my choice when waiting to meet someone there.

        The Melting Pot is fantastic. They have pretty good cocktails and nice wine list, as well.

          Can you tell us what you had and why it was fantastic? I really like the space but haven't been to the latest incarnation there.

            Of course! Well I went last Wednesday for an event they were doing for Dress for Success San Francisco, so they had a preset menu. One highlight for me was the spinach artichoke cheese fondue, but then again I love artichokes. My sister said she's also had their Quattro Cheese which she recommends.
            Second highlight for me were the drinks. Again we were there for a fundraising event so they had a special menu, but they had margaritas and cosmopolitans for $7. The blackberry margarita was good. If you're a wine drinker they have a pretty extensive list.
            For desert we had a dark chocolate raspberry fondue. It was ok, but I don't really like dark chocolate. I prefer the pure milk chocolate. They serve it with strawberries, pineapple, brownies, marshmallows, pound cake, cheese cake and a few other things.
            The building is amazing. It's in an old brick kiln building (I attached a photo from their website). I went with my sister and a few girlfriends and had a great time, but I think it's also a good choice for date night..

              It is a great space. I had a drink there a while back. You might check the chains board for more opinions about Melting Pot. If you want to try it, according to the website during Happy Hour the cheese and chocolate fondues are half off as are some drinks.

              This from the website ...

              It's the only space in the area where you are invited to relax with a
