Marin restaurant closing

Email yesterday from Dan & Holly Baker announced the closing of their restaurant AVA in San Anselmo at the end of the year. They dedicated AVA to food and wines from within 200 miles and had some memorable wine dinners which introduced newer area wines--Pey-Marin was new to me at the time, for instance. One dinner featured vegetables all grown on a farm almost within walking distance of the tables.

They will be having 50%-off on all bottles in their wine collection on December 22/23 & 29/30. Here is a PDF of their wine list:

Dan & Holly's other place, the wonderful Marche aux Fleurs will happily, thankfully remain open in Ross.

  1. I had a feeling that AVA would not survive. Besides being in a jinxed location, not surprising the fans flock to Marche.
