Sir and Star Restaurant

Sir and Star Restaurant

Poached Duck Egg on Savoy Cabbage with Thick Cut Bacon

Beef Marrow Bones with Onion Confit and Biscuits

Almost in the middle of nowhere is the West Marin County town of Olema, home to the restaurant Sir and Star. It is owned and operated by Chefs Margaret Grade and Daniel DeLong who had the popular Mankas Lodge nearby before it suddenly closed due to a fire that destroyed the building. The new restaurant Sir and Star follows the same menu philosophy of Mankas by using very local ingredients from the sea to the field. The building is a old farmhouse with a wrap around covered porch set in a grove of mature eucalyptus trees and they even painted it black! The food is served in smaller plates perfect for sharing and with a good list of California wines too.

You have to Eat your Veggies Too

The meat might be the star of the plate but the sides can be great too. This was a sauté baby carrots, Fingerling potatoes and onions all cooked to a caramelized sweetness with a touch of bacon added to give a little smokiness.
