Murray Circle, Sausalito, CA

Murray Circle Restaurant Review

: The Cavallo Point resort and its gem of a restaurant were created in restored barracks on majestic old military grounds at the northern base of the Golden Gate Bridge. In each of the two intimate main dining rooms, tables are spaced for comfort under a restored, tin-plated ceiling. The kitchen delivers distinctive, locally-sourced California cuisine. Because so much of the menu is seasonal, dishes change all the time. They have included black garlic tamales complemented by queso fresco; trout, crispy skinned and paired with a sunchoke cream; a tasting of Prather Ranch pork; and boar ribs with brassica salad. An extensive international wine list features many notable choices under $40, and the sommeliers provide expert guidance. A martini and a Sazerac are among CP cocktails. Finish with an array of artisanal cheeses, such as Golden Ewe from Golden Valley Farm in Chowchilla, and Bohemian Creamery’s (Sebastopol) Capriago. Affogato and a cranberry-ricotta cake with crème fraîche ice cream demonstrate the restaurant’s approach to dessert.
